Twitter Cries Racism Over Picture of Mourning Santa Fe Students, Appalled Mother Fires Back

Race-baiting Twitter has reached a horrific new low.

It has been just over two weeks since our nation was once again rocked with the despicable acts of a single young man who made the unthinkable decision to murder his teachers and peers in Santa Fe, Texas.

As the community struggles to cope with this tragedy of unthinkable proportion, SJWs on Twitter, perhaps upset that the Texas community isn’t as eager to push the gun control agenda as Parkland was, apparently have nothing better to do than accuse the survivors of racism. 

These are high school students who did nothing more than pay tribute to their deceased classmates, and yet Twitter felt the need to falsely and arbitrarily accuse a group of young women of singling out their black friend.

The Blaze has the story:

Prior to the start of Game 5 in the NBA’s Western Conference finals between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, the NBA invited Santa Fe High School seniors and first responders to the game, according to KHOU-TV.

The senior students gathered on court together to sing the national anthem and hold a moment of silence for the 10 lives lost at their school on May 18 in a shooting massacre.

Afterward, the NBA posted a picture of the girls to its Twitter account, where it garnered a lot of attention for all the wrong reasons.

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.

One tweet that passive aggressively questioned why the black girl’s hands weren’t held garnered nearly 40,000 retweets and more than 100,000 “likes.”

The young woman, in question, was quickly and vehemently defended by none other than her mother, who was aghast that anyone would twist such a poignant moment into something so ugly.

She fired back in epic mama bear proportions:

As to why Nicole, the young woman in question, was not holding hands with her friends, Lynda gave a simple and understandable answer:

“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, according to The Blaze.

“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.

Someone dared to question Lynda’s relation to Nicole, which she quickly shot down as well:

Finally, one twitter user crossed a serious line when they asked how Lynda, a white person, is able to teach her daughter about racism through “all her privilege.”

Her response was perfect:

Mic drop, mama bear!
