Over the weekend a teen group from a Catholic school in Kentucky became a viral sensation for what appeared to be a confrontation between some of the boys and a Native American man who had participated in the Indigenous People's March. What most people didn't see was the video shot by a third group on site, Black Hebrew Israelites, a group some refer to as radical and dangerous.
The members of the BHI had been taunting the teens from Covington Catholic High School for some time using obscenities and racist language including the term "cracker". Some of the boys returned the taunts and one removed his shirt and performed the Haka, a Maori tribal dance.
When Nathan Phillips approached the scene he says he felt it was volatile and decided to try to keep the sides separate by stepping in between them and playing his drum.
What happens next can be seen on these two videos.
