A video of a black policeman talking to a white woman on racism during a ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest is doing the rounds of the internet.

A white woman who was participating in a ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest engaged in a heated argument with several police officers’ in Washington DC on Tuesday. The woman is caught on camera accusing the white police officers of being racist.

“Just because you have one black friend or a black wife, you can still be racist,” she said to one of the white cops. “It has nothing to do with your acquaintances.”

In response, a black officer responds, saying that hate and violence come from sin, and quotes a line from the Bible.

‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me… America and the world have a sin problem. That’s where racism, injustice, and hate and anger and violence come from. It’s not about racism… Read the Bible,” the policeman says.
