Harry Dunn has been a police officer for nearly 13 years and a black man his entire life, and he will still be both of those things on Tuesday morning when he testifies before Congress about the events of January 6, 2021, regardless of whether Fox News’s Tucker Carlson believes that’s possible. Dunn is the officer famously dismissed by Carlson, who said that “Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry left-wing political activist.”
Carlson came to that conclusion because Dunn has expressed his belief that black Americans face inequality and that the members of white supremacist groups who attacked the Capitol hurled racial slurs at black officers, who were “fighting a very different fight” than their white colleagues.
Tomorrow I'll be testifying before congress, and while I don't think I'm nervous, I am definitely anxious. It will be televised so please tune in and support if you are able to.
Additionally I am soliciting your good vibes!!! Thanks in advance pic.twitter.com/D89uxfgmk6

Dunn will recount his recollection of events, which haven’t changed or become less true because his skin is black or because he agreed with a congresswoman that black people have been oppressed. He will still recount events that have been caught at every possible angle in videos posted on the social media accounts of members of The Three Percenters, The Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, Texas Freedom Force, all of which are white supremacist groups. They won’t suffer consequences because of an “angry” black man, they’ll suffer them because they committed crimes against our government, crimes Tucker Carlson openly encouraged and excused.
Twitter was supportive of Dunn and thanked him for his service and his testimony. Read some of their responses below:
