Watch A College Student School Fox's Varney About Mischaracterizing A Black Lives Matter Demonstration

Charles Lundquist: “What Was Said Earlier About This Protest Being Violent Is Not True... The Media As A Whole Has Mischaracterized This Movement.”

From the November 18 edition of Fox Business' Varney & Co.:

STUART VARNEY: I understand that you now reject Black Lives Matter tactics. You were a supporter but now you're rejecting those tactics. Have I got this right, sir?

CHARLES LUNDQUIST: I think that it's important to recognize that what happened in that video was really a small event that was at the very end of the protest, and I was very happy with how it went up to the very end where it began to be a little bit more disruptive. Also what was said earlier about this protest being violent is not true. No one has come forward to the college saying that this was violent, and I think that it's really an indication that the media as a whole has mischaracterized this movement to be something that was violent.

VARNEY: I want to look at that protest at Dartmouth University. That was the library. Am I right in saying that some white students, or one white student was reduced to tears because she had been called a filthy racist? It seems to me that this is a kind of racial attack. I'm sure you don't support that, do you?

LUNDQUIST: Really the question we should be asking is this, why are the protesters so angry?

VARNEY: No. I'm asking the question, sir, and my question is are those tactics justified and what is your response to those tactics?

LUNDQUIST: I would say considering that on campus prior to this protest there were hateful and racist Yik Yaks about students of color at Dartmouth, a Native American student was egged, and a Black Lives Matter memorial was defaced, I would say that the anger was justified.
