A black nationalist group called NFAC gathered at Stone Mountain, Georgia, on Saturday afternoon, to call on right-wing militia groups across the United States to engage in a full-scale war against it.
The Not F**king Around Coalition—yes, that’s their name, and they’re “not f**king around”—appears to be a variant of the Black Hebrew Israelites movement that even the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center designated as a black supremacist “hate group,” according to Far Left Watch.
The NFAC, numbering in the hundreds, dressed in black and marched on Stone Mountain Park. The group openly brandished rifles and other firearms.
The park is known for its Confederate carvings of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson on the north face of the mountain and the place of the Ku Klux Klan’s rebirth in 1915, according to The New York Times.
“I don’t see no white militia. To the Boogie Bois, the Three Percenters, and all the scared ass rednecks, we here,” an NFAC speaker said while kneeling before lines of armed followers. “Where f**k you at? We in your house.”
In a speech addressing the NFAC, the group's leader Grand Master Jay described how he planned to build a blacks-only ethnostate inside the United States and demanded the handover of the state of Texas.
The park police escorted the NFAC out at the demonstration’s conclusion, expressing no issue with the extremist group’s presence.
A spokesman for the park’s safety division, John Bankhead, emphasized to 11Alive that the park is public and has been grounds for public discourse before.
"We have these protests on both sides of the issue from time to time,” Bankhead said. “We respect people's first amendment rights to exercise those rights."
"We understand the sensitivity of the issues here at the park and the dark past so we respect that and allow them to come in," he concluded. "As long as it's peaceful, which it has been, then that's fine."
The protest saw no instances of violence or physical altercations.
