McKesson defended himself from critics by pointing to Boston Tea Party

Drew links between revolutionary patriots' protest and Black Lives Matter

A prominent Black Lives Matter activist has offered a defense of violent looters who plundered U.S. cities like Ferguson and Baltimore in a lecture series delivered at Yale.

DeRay McKesson, 30, was invited to the prestigious school to lecture on the movement, which began in earnest after unarmed black teen Michael Brown was killed by a white cop in Ferguson. Missouri.

McKesson was hired for a two-part series, and as part of the preparation for the for-credit course at Yale's School of Divinity, he told students to read an article which describes looting as a 'righteous tactic'.

When challenged on his inclusion of the material by Fox News, McKesson doubled down by drawing a comparison between looters and patriots at the Boston Tea Party.

He told the news outlet: 'The relationship and tension between protest and property destruction is something that America has grappled with since the Revolutionary War and the Boston Tea Party.'
