By now, you’ve probably seen multiple angles of the super viral riverfront rumble in Montgomery, Alabama where heroic Black folks assembled like the Avengers to protect their fellow man in a stunning display of solidarity that blew up social media.
This video shows how the whole Alabama ferry brawl started.
Brother man was doing his job telling these folks to move their boat so the ferry could dock.

It all started when a Black security guard informed a group of white people that they needed to move their boat so that a group of Black folks can dock.
Yo this is wild 😭
A group of white men attacked a black security guard after the security asked them to move their pontoon boat so the big Harriot can dock. They refused to & attacked the security guard.

Naturally, the white people refused to comply and assaulted the security guard which prompted a 16-year-old member of the riverboat staff to jump in the water and swim to shore to help the Black security guard being jumped by a swarm of white aggressors.
Shout out to the boy who swam for that action to help a brother out. Folks are callin’ him the black aquaman 😂 #Montgomery #riverboatbrawl #BlackTwitter pic.twitter.com/JSBbz81oWk

Moments later, seas of Black folks flooded the dock to deliver multiple fades in one of the biggest brawls we’ve seen this year.

As a result of the FAAFO fracas, several people were arrested, including the white people who started the entire thing.
According to WSFA, the police are investigating the video and looking to make more arrests and bring more charges.

As expected, social media exploded with jokes, memes, and any other shenanigans you can imagine in yet another example of Black Twitter being the epicenter of peak entertainment.
They’re thinking of names for the young guy that jumped in the water… #Montgomery
Best so far:– Sea Murda– Scuba Gooding Jr.– Aqua Mane

Also worth noting is Black visionary Nathanial Alexander’s invention of the folding chair. A true cookout icon.
