Bernice King reflects on election, Capitol riots
AP, 12 Jan 2021
Bernice King says the unrest in Washington would have played out differently if the rioters were Black. (Jan. 11)
Bernice King, CEO of The King Center in Atlanta, spoke with the Associated Press on several topics, including last week's violent insurrection at the nation's Capitol.
"I think we tend to fuel the fires, to fan the flames quite a bit in this nation when people do stuff that is extreme like that in a hateful way," she said.
King added that she saw a double standard in effect: If the rioters were Black, they would've been treated differently, she said.
She also spoke about the presidential election, saying she hoped to see the energy and strategic mobilizing efforts continue.
