Video of a young man apparently confronting a Native American elder went viral tagged as apparent racial harassment. The clip had been edited out of a much longer video which saw a more complex situation in which the teen was caught between activists at Washington’s Lincoln Memorial. The full video sees the teens standing up to provocation from a group called Black Hebrew Israelites before the Native American intervenes to calm the situation.
