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

Good job, Mom!

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.

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

Dem-Controlled House Unveils ‘Court Packing’ Legislation, Want 13 Justices on SCOTUS

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
