A round of applause for student counter-protesters who stood up to white supremacists at UVA

 

On Friday night, a band of cowardly racists marched through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville. And while people on Twitter are rightfully condemning the hate rally (and making fun of its obviously mass-purchased tiki torches) they’re also applauding the brave student counter-protesters who stood their ground,

Per a local NBC affiliate, counter-protesters clashed with the white supremacists when the march approached a statue of Thomas Jefferson. Some marchers even used their tiki torches as weapons. Police, however, did not arrive at the scene until the altercation was almost over.
