A press conference about racial injustice turned ugly Wednesday when a small group of protesters, including a white supremacist, disrupted the event with shouts about "black criminals."

The meeting was sponsored by a group of Cincinnati ministers who said they want to use the All-Star Game spotlight to speak out about the criminal justice system and the recent deaths of black men in police custody.

It quickly degenerated, however, into a series of shouting matches, with the ministers struggling to be heard over the half-dozen protesters.

At one point, a frustrated Bobby Hilton, leader of Word Deliverance Ministries in Forest Park, urged the protesters to leave if they couldn't talk about the issues without yelling.

"If you can't have an intelligent conversation, move on," Hilton said. "Let's come together. Can we come together?"

"Not at all," replied Robert Ransdell, who did most of the shouting.

Ransdell is a former candidate for senate in Kentucky and a member of the National Alliance, a group the Anti-Defamation League identifies as a white supremacist organization. "How many decades are we going to accommodate the behavior of black criminals?" he shouted as Hilton and the others tried to speak.

Other protesters carried signs that read, "Diversity means chasing down the last white person, #whitegenocide."

That's sad when you have someone asking for peace and can we come together and they say no.

Glad they are just a few individuals speaking for themselves and not their entire race.

Yep, they get that privilege. Imagine if the roles were reversed?

This story makes me think of our Election system.

White supremacist shouts over minister. Is that not what has happened to our entire system? Now that money = speech, The Koch Brothers can shout over all of us and our voice cannot be heard. Sorry but thats not how the First Amendment should work.

Pretty much.

I just wish they'd get the right people to sit down and hash this mess out. Makes me want to quit my job and become an activist full time...
