Be careful of what you read on the Internet -- it's not always trustworthy! For instance, following the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, a Facebook post was circulated that supposedly was taken at Saturday's protest, featuring a photo of a black police officer protecting the white supremacists attending the event.
There was another white supremacist rally in Charlottesville on July 8, 2017, which is likely where this photo was taken. More than a thousand people were in attendance, including about 50 Ku Klux Klan members. According to USA Today, police used tear gas on the crowd, and 22 people were arrested.
There's enough Klan rallies to go around that you can attribute dates and events correctly OR you can sharebait hustle your way to virality.— stacy-marie ishmael (@s_m_i) August 12, 2017
