Police kept everyone safe by keeping the group separate, but a video shows Maxwell on the Antifa side trying to engage in peaceful dialogue with the group.
R.C. Maxwell, a black conservative who supports President Trump, got punched in the face Sunday night while trying to discuss his views with opponents. "I was getting lots of specific comments like you're a sellout, you're an Uncle Tom".
"If the optics were completely different and I was a Black Lives Matter supporter and I was attacked on the Trump side of the protest I would be the spotlight on CNN right now", Maxwell told Fox 11.
Losey was arrested as he was trying to buy a bus ticket to OH on Tuesday, Cota said.
"I think the fact that I'm a black conservative causes a lot of problems for the left side because there's no way they can really resolve that according to their narrative of what they think Trump supporters are, so I think that was a bit triggering to the other side", Maxwell told Fox 11.
