A video of a fight breaking between 'Bernie Sanders supporters,' one white and one black, went viral as it emerged the scuffle was over the African-American man’s “Black Guns Matter” T-shirt, which was interpreted as “racist.”

The Sanders rally was being held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver Sunday evening when the fight broke out.

The initial brawl was caught on camera Colorado’s CBS4, which began doing the rounds online.

“CBS4’s news camera was capturing video of the event when two men began fighting,” CBS4 reported.

“They pushed through a metal barrier fence toward the back near the media risers as they grappled with each other and one man knocked the other down onto the ground after lifting him up.

They both landed on the ground partially under the stage Sanders was in the middle of delivering his speech from. Friends of both people quickly intervened, and after some more shoving successfully broke up the fight.”

One of the men involved in the fight contacted CBS4, saying he was the white guy shown duking it out in the video.

The African-American man battling the Bernie supporter later contacted the outlet.

In another video, before the fight breaking out, it shows the African-American man arguing and the Tyler arguing over the “Black Guns Matter” shirt.

Tyler alleges that man with a “‘Black Guns Matter” shirt was with two other men, “and they were booing during the speech,” CBS reported.

“When Tyler tried to capture video of the booing on his phone’s camera, the man shoved him through the barrier. Tyler then retaliated. It was that action which was captured by CBS4’s camera.”

CBS4 was later provided with a new video from an anonymous source showing the argument leading up to the fight.

The self-described African-American admitted the whole thing started over a t-shirt.

“He had a problem with the shirt I was wearing,” the man told CBS4.

“I was recording the event; he walks up and calls me a racist. But I thought, ‘What’s he know about black lives, about discrimination, or, for that matter, the representation of the shirt.'”

“Black people and their ability to own firearms has historically been very restricted,” he added.

“The shirt I got from a conceal-carry class.”

The man said though agrees with sanders on most policies, it stops at guns.

“I think it’s really a sad thing at a Bernie rally when someone has a difference of opinion, that someone would be treated like that,” he added.

“I thought it really would be a lot more inclusive than that. It’s not a safe place to express differences. I would expect that sort of thing at a Trump rally.”
