Sometimes when we speak of white privilege in the United States of America we are misunderstood, and accused of promoting racial hate.
But here, before our very eyes, we see what white privilege really looks like. In a country where unarmed black people are shot by law enforcement for no crime of their own, a white man who was among others who attempted a coup, that led to the death of other Americans and multiple injuries, is been pampered by the judiciary.
The 33-year-old Arizona man, Jacob Anthony Chansley, who is the leader of QAnon, who was seen on video and pictures wearing horns and storming the Capitol building on Jan. 6, is going to be fed an organic diet while he is the custody of U.S Marshals.
Jacob Anthony Chansley turned himself in to the FBI office three days after the asault on the Capitol building.
The authorities charged him that same day for “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.”
Chansley appeared in a Phoenix federal courtroom via telephone on Monday, 11th, Jan, where a public defender named Gerald Williams, said that Chansley had not eaten any food since Saturday of his arrest, as a result of a strictly organic diet.
The U.S Marshals did not object to the decision by the Judge, Deborah Fine, to accomodate his diet while he was in custody.
