Twitter Screams ‘Racism’ Over Photo of Students, One Girl’s Mother Sets The Record Straight

Good job, Mom!

Published

A group of Santa Fe High School students who recently had a picture of themselves posted on Twitter at an NBA game found themselves the target of progressives on social media who defaulted to their favorite tactic and labeled the photo as “racism.”

These students attended the school that recently had a deadly school shooting take place, meaning many of these kids probably lost loved ones and friends in the incident, so the tossing out of the race card is in extremely poor taste.

Anyway, once the trolls started slobbering all over themselves in an eager effort to attack these poor kids and make themselves look “woke,” one girl’s mother decided to fire back and set the record straight.

The Golden State Warriors NBA team invited the students and first responders from the school to sing the national anthem and to hold a moment of silence for the victims of the shooting before the game.

The NBA posted the picture on their Twitter account, and immediately it started garnering negative attention. Why? Because all of the girls holding hands in the photo were white and no one was holding the hand of the only black girl featured in the photo.

The picture shows six white girls holding hands while a black girl, Nicole Janice, appears to be standing alone. Immediately, social media users charged that racism was the reason the young black woman was excluded.

The black girl’s mother, Lynda jumped in.

As you might expect from all the mighty, mighty social justice warriors, many folks on Twitter still gave this girl and her mother the business:

Lynda told KHOU the image the NBA posted to Twitter did not capture every student on the court, which is important because the students not in the image also were not holding hands.

“When Nicole came out of her room Saturday morning, she was upset that they had turned this into a race thing, because she knew what was real. To make something so simple into a race issue was just absolutely ludicrous,” Lynda said.

“It’s very disappointing that people are going to take a race issue out of a picture with nine grieving girls in it. I grieve in my own different way. I don’t like to be touched. When we had that moment of silence, I didn’t want to grab anyone’s hands because I didn’t want to break down before we sang [the national anthem],” Nicole added.

How sad is it that folks on the left are so desperate to feel relevant that they will take anything they can find, no matter how small and insignificant, and attempt to transform it into a racial matter? It’s insulting, silly, and just plain ridiculous.

This poor girl was grieving, having lost people she knew well in a horrific attack that will leave scars she’ll never ever forget. And instead of allowing this to be a beautiful moment, intellectually challenged leftists blew it up into something it wasn’t and detracted attention from the reason these kids were at the game to begin with.

Nice work, social justice warriors.

Video: Joe Biden Says DACA Recipients ‘More American Than Most Americans’ (Watch)

Americans might have a thing or two to say about that…

2020 Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t think drunk driving is a felony, when illegal aliens do it. No joke. He said he wouldn’t deport an illegal over a drunk driving offense. How terrible is that? But Joe didn’t stop there. He went further. He is now saying DACA illegals are “more American than most Americans” because they do well in school. This is your Democrat frontrunner, folks… WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWX3i9Amxxw&feature=emb_logo Reactions: https://twitter.com/CoolCzech1/status/1220476467412377600?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220476467412377600&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F https://twitter.com/CasualSemi/status/1220474912185470976?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220474912185470976&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F https://twitter.com/RealRegularJoe/status/1220476216341385218?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220476216341385218&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F Biden should easily lose the Democrat nomination based on his own merit. That’s how terrible a candidate he really is. However, Joe’s son Hunter is making things so much harder on the 2020 presidential campaign, given how he’s such a total screw-up. After Burisma and the baby mama drama, Hunter may now be linked to multiple criminal probes. Not just one. Multiple. From New York Post: Hunter Biden is the subject of multiple criminal investigations related to “fraud, money laundering and a counterfeiting scheme,” it’s claimed in court documents filed Monday in his Arkansas paternity case. The claims were put forward by a Florida-based private-eye firm, D&A Investigations, in Biden’s ongoing case against alleged baby mama Lunden Alexis Roberts, a former Washington, DC, stripper who went by “Dallas.” WATCH: To open a very serious hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivers a completely made-up account of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian President. Very normal and professional. https://twitter.com/BlazeTV/status/1177218754557751296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177218754557751296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call Reactions: If the conversation were as damning as Schiff et al would like, he would have simply read directly from it, instead of making up dialogue. Probably not surprising in light of the extravagant collusion claims he made for 2 years. https://twitter.com/brithume/status/1177243632593772545?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177243632593772545&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call There isn’t a sleazier human being in politics than corrupt charlatan Adam Schiff.

After three years out of the spotlight, it appears Barack Obama is ready to get back into the game. Why? Who knows? It’s not as if anyone is asking him to come back. Maybe he feels it is his duty.

Corruption? Those two words do not belong in the same sentence! Barack was the greatest leader that America, nay, THE WORLD, has ever seen! There’s no chance he was involved in any corrupt activities, son! That’s how liberals in Congress and the mainstream media view, Barry. I think my impersonation was pretty spot on.
