Midterm Mayhem episode 12: Humble heroes

We demand answers from white community leaders after Keene State pumpkin riots

There are so many issues in the white community right now that’s difficult to know where to start. Rampant affluenza. Racist tax code changes. Only seeing themselves politically represented by four-fifths of Congress and 43 of the past 44 presidents. It’s a tough time to be white.

And white youths are fighting back. This past weekend, thousands of students took to the streets and lit bonfires, turned over cars, and threw liquor bottles to protest… pumpkins. Or something. Look, the point is they’re angry and they’re not gonna take it any more. “It” being “pumpkin festivals.”

Police responded to the riots by tear-gassing students and spraying rubber bullets into the crowd. Because, you know, that’s what police do now.

Watch “Midterm Mayhem” LIVE Sunday-Thursday at 9:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. PT on the Fusion network and streaming at fusion.tv/mayhem.
