*A Black GOP candidate running as a write-in for Massachusetts’ District 7 congressional seat currently held by Rep. Ayanna Pressley, said she was assaulted after a Columbus Day political rally, and believes the attack was “racially charged.”

Rayla Campbell, of Randolph, chair of Black Voices for Trump in Massachusetts, attended a roadside rally for President Trump Monday in New Bedford. She filed a complaint with New Bedford police saying she was assaulted by two women and broke her tibia. But videotape obtained by WBSM talk radio host Barry Richard shows that Campbell was taunting one of the women through a megaphone shortly before pushing and shoving started. Campbell went up to the woman’s car in the parking lot shouting something indiscernible before the woman came out of her car and got in Campbell’s face.

At one point during the 6-minute altercation, a woman who appears to be Campbell can be heard in the video yelling through the megaphone at the two women, “You want to go,” and “You want this?”

New Bedford police are investigating the event.

*It should be no surprise that in Forsyth County, Georgia, a man wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt to his local polling place was pulled out of the early voting line.

“When the poll worker stopped me in line, I was really kind of shocked, but I thought alright here we go, so I pulled out my phone and started recording,” explains Zach Arias.

The poll worker told Arias that his BLM attire violated a law that forbids candidate campaign material beyond a certain point.

“Black Lives Matter is not on the ballot, it’s not a party, it’s not a slogan of any person on the ballot so I was well within my rights to wear my shirt,” Arias said.

Watch below:

In 1987, Oprah Winfrey famously took her show to Forsythe County, where no Black person had lived for 75 years. She wanted to hear out the county’s white residents, some of whom argued they should be able to keep blacks from moving into their communities.

*Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Alicia Garza was the target of a hate-fueled attack planned by a white supremacist in Idaho. 

Garza’s name was reportedly on a long list of activists and political leaders that was found at the home of the man who the FBI apprehended earlier this month. 

“The FBI visited my house today. They arrested a man in Idaho on weapons charges who they believe was affiliated with white supremacist groups. They found my name on a list in his home, alongside others,” she tweeted.

“This is why this president is so dangerous. He is stoking fires he has no intention of controlling.”

In the weeks leading up to Election Day, President Donald Trump has been accused of encouraging racist attacks. He even made reference to the white supreacist group Proud Boys during a debate with Joe Biden. 

“Proud Boys? Stand back and stand by,” he said when asked to denounce white supremacy.

“I’m ok, y’all, but this shit is not ok. Vote this muthaf—– out. For real,” Garza tweeted. 

Meanwhile, Garza’s soon-to-be released book, “The Purpose of Power,” details her path to activism. During an interview with “Sunday Morning” contributor Mark Whitaker about her book, she was asked about criticism that Black Lives Matter is simply a social media movement. 

Garza responded, “The story of movements is not about how many people follow you on social media. It’s about how many people will step forward. And you can have a million followers on Twitter and not get one person to step forward and take action!”

“So, is the leader or the founder of one of the most famous social media movements of the modern era telling us that social media isn’t everything?” asked Whitaker.

“Well, I can tell you, as the founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, which is now considered to be the largest protest movement in history, that hashtags do not start movements. People do.”
