At a die-in, participants simply lie on the ground and pretend to be dead.
MRCTV visited a die-in at George Washington University, where several dedicated activists laid out in the cold and drizzle to protest what they view as the unjust decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.
All of the typical activist chants were heard. “No Justice, No Peace. No Racist Police,” etc. The group also did its rendition of “We Shall Overcome” which is typically sung at some point at every liberal rally, no matter what the cause.
Some of the “dead” students couldn’t help but check their cell phones during the event, which, if you ask me, kind of diminished the power of intended message.
Things were going great for these activists until I showed up and started questioning them about what they actually knew about the claims they were making about Michael Brown’s death and statistics about black Americans who are killed by police.
That’s when they stopped talking to me.
