Black Lives Matter activists marched into a Seattle neighborhood earlier this week and demanded that white residents "give black people back their homes."

Video footage posted to Twitter Wednesday shows dozens of protesters chanting "black lives matter" before a rogue demonstrator shouted at a nearby resident saying they were living in a historically black section of the city.

"Do you know that before your white a-- came here, this was all black people?" the man said. "Do you know people like you came in here and basically bought all the land from the black people for less than what it was worth, kicked them out so you could live here? Do you know that?" the man said. "Cause if you don't, now you [expletive] do — now do something about it!"

Another woman in the crowd then told residents to "open their wallet," while a woman with a megaphone tells members of the neighborhood to "give up" their house.

"You're sitting there comfortably — comfortable as [expletive] as if they didn't help gentrify this neighborhood! I used to live in this neighborhood, and my family was pushed out, and you're sitting up there having a good time with your other white friends!" the woman shouted.
