BENTON HARBOR — Benton Harbor Mayor Marcus Muhammad said white privilege was clearly on display recently as armed protesters walked around the state capitol in Lansing twice in the past few weeks largely not shadowed by police.

On Monday, he posted on Facebook two photos comparing the white, rifle-carrying protesters to a news conference he led in Lansing last summer to save the mostly black Benton Harbor school district. The post ends with #hypocrisyinplainsight.
