"Bikers for Trump" mistake non-white rally-goer for protester and physically force him out of arena



A man who said he went to hear President Donald Trump speak in Pennsylvania last night was shoved around and forced out of the Harrisburg event by a group of men calling themselves “Bikers for Trump”.

Speaking with AOL.com, Neil Makhija said a woman pointed him out as a protester –even though he was just there to watch — and he was immediately surrounded by a group of burly men who forced him up against a wall.

Calling it a “disturbing moment,” Makhija said the altercation began when a woman near him was removed because she was holding up a sign reading, “The sea levels are rising.”

“Then a supporter just pointed at me and said, ‘Hey, take that guy too,’ and they went after me,” Makhija explained.

4. Doesn't seem like he was a Trump supporter, just an attendee at a presidential event.

That's not exactly uncommon, but if you're brown it's dangerous.

Here is this guy's page from ballotopedia.

But he wasn't doing anything that should have gotten him harassed like that, other than being there in a non-Orange and more believable tan.
