103. yes. they wear all black

and usually remain masked. They look like little ninjas. Kind of stupid really. If I were planning to commit assault or petty crimes the last thing I would want is to be dressed in such a way as to easily identify myself. Perhaps they are thinking that a guy dressed in black is not enough to make any positive ID on that person as there are many dressed like that. They are not all men either. Thee be women as well.

i would not doubt some are with them that are not wearing the gang garb. Yes some protesters may wear black. Most do not for that reason. Also the regular protesters usually only wear bandannas over their faces when there is imminent threat of pepper spraying. Some of the black bloc even have their entire heads wrapped.

try to find some footage of this or basically any other protest and watch. You will very quickly be able ti identify the blac bloc from the rest. Just a black bandanna does not mean black bloc unless it's being worn wen there is no threat.
