KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Jacob Blake tells TMZ the Rittenhouse case would have been handled differently if Kyle was not white. 

"He'd be gone, it wouldn't be no 'he's a hero' and this and that," Blake said. "They would have said that he's underage, he traveled to a different state with a firearm that didn't belong to him."

The police shooting of Jacob Blake sparked the riots that brought Rittenhouse to Kenosha last summer. 

Now, Blake is hoping for peace in the streets.

"I don't know if they're gonna riot, they're gonna protest, but I'm hoping whatever the outcome is that there's none of that," Blake said. "Cause it's not gonna fix nothing."

Blake says Kyle Rittenhouse "might not be a bad person," but he shouldn't have been at last year's protest.
