On May 14, protesters, upset with not being paid their promised checks for protesting, protested outside MORE, Missourians Organizing For Reform and Empowerment, an ACORN organization which had received funding through George Soros to fund the protests.
The white guy they are yelling at here is Jeff Ordower, the founder of MORE. Ordower is long time leftist activist, previously associated with union organizing with the SEIU and with ACORN:

They even started a hashtag, #cutthechecks, to demand their money(@organizemo is the Twitter account of MORE):
Some folks had apparently been paid like Deray McKesson, and others hadn’t, causing further discord.
This protester indicates those who protested for more money were paid $2700 to stop making a fuss, but it would then impact the ability to protest over the summer in #Ferguson:
More fun with paid protesters here…
