The Fourth of July, about 1,000 heavily armed Black people challenged those theories by marching through Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park to call for the removal of America’s largest Confederate monument—the 76 by 158-foot carving depicting Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson.
Newsweek reports that the massive yet peaceful march was organized by the Not Fucking Around Coalition (NFAC), a group whose “initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?” according to the groups founder Grand Master Jay.
“It was all Black,” Grand Master Jay told Newsweek. “There were no brown people, no white people…everyone was Black. I am not a protester, I am the commanding general of my militia, we were swearing in new members.”
In one video posted to Twitter, one of the militia members can be heard challenging white nationalists to come out of hiding, effectively changing the group’s name to the “Fuck Around and Find Out Coalition” or the “Ima Whoop Me a Racist’s Ass Ta’day Organization.”
“I don’t see no white militia, the boogie [boogaloo] boys, the three percenters and all the rest of these scared-ass rednecks. We here, where the fuck you at? We’re in your house,” he said.“I don’t see no white militia, the boogie [boogaloo] boys, the three percenters and all the rest of these scared-ass rednecks. We here, where the fuck you at?
