Attorney releases Video showing the Group that identifies as Hebrew Israelites hurling slurs at the Native Americans
The audio is very clear on this video. We did not see this in any of the videos used by the media and the Hebrew Israelites were defended in several media reports. It shows a clear picture of hate and bigotry towards the Native American group. Very sad to watch.
