And? They have a right to protest as much as anyone does. Are you suggesting we start censoring groups we disagree with?

Everyone has a right, not just them. You have a right to protest them as well.

Agreed, however the title of the OP doesn't so much take issue with their views as the fact that they are protesting, I mean that's the title. It implies that the problem the OP has is with the fact that they are protesting, at leat that is the way it is framed.

None of us knows what happened in this situation.

What we do know is that there is a long history of Southern racists falsely accusing black men of rape or being interested in white women, and sometimes either imprisoning or killing them for it.

This grim history counsels a degree of caution under these circumstances.

"Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior."

It makes me blue as hell, it really does.
