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.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
