When Civil Rights Icon Congressman Tells Baltimore Rioters to Go Home, They Yell ‘F**k You Ni**a’

This is sad, but amusing nonetheless. Congressman Elijah Cummings, famous for his civil rights activism as an early black Maryland politician, was pleading with the rioters to go home. Many in the crowd didn’t take kindly to Cummings’ call for peace and lawful protest.

This is what you have wrought, Mr. Cummings…

Reaping what you’ve sown, Mr. Cummings.
