You ever wanted a perfect example of what it is like being black in America?
Here you go.
Two North Carolina High School students were suspended for reposting a video of their classmate using the n-word during a debate, Buzzfeed reports.
Carmani Harris-Jackson, 15, said she started posting her opinions about gun control on Snapchat after she saw some of her classmates criticizing National Walkout Day, the nation-wide student protest against gun control.
One white female student posted a video of another girl who said “They’re putting laws on who can purchase a gun. No, n*gger.”
Harris-Jackson and her friend, 16-year-old Trinity Smith, wanted to hold the girl accountable for highlighting a video featuring a racial slur, so they reposted the video on their Facebook and Twitter profiles. They mentioned the girl’s name and Central Cabarrus High School, the high school they all attend. The video went viral and received over 10,000 views and 200 shares.
The morning after the video was posted, their school asked the girls to take it down. They didn’t want to remove the clip, but did after their school promised Smith and her mother that they wouldn’t be punished for the incident. They received a two-day out of school suspension the following day.
The fact I had to dig DEEP to even find the white girl’s name (it is Chloe Collins) and could only find one photo of her tells you how she has the complexion for protection.
But, racists no matter the age, shouldn’t be protected.
