VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — A clash broke out between members of Patriot Prayer and Antifa at an I-5 overpass in Vancouver Monday afternoon sparked by a sign at the overpass that states, “It’s OK to be white.”

The clash began as Antifa members held a sign over the overpass to remember Mulugeta Seraw, a PSU student from Ethiopia who was killed by 3 white supremacists 29 years ago.

Members of Patriot Prayer went to the next overpass and displayed their “It’s OK to be white” sign.

Clashes began and both sides argued whether white privilege is real.

The confrontation last about an hour and overall remained peaceful.
