I am so deeply grieved and angry by this as young kids in MAGA hats surrounded and mocked a beloved Native American elder yesterday.
When your power is centered in your whiteness, mocking others who are unlike you makes you feel strong.
But it’s weak. And despicable. pic.twitter.com/38FtzGtowL

Want to make America great again? QUIT harassing people that are different than you and remember how and why America came into existence. This is beyond disgusting. ENOUGH.
I would love to read a comment from the parents and the school. The school withdrew all avenues for contacting them except by snail mail. I guess the parents are hiding, too. Maybe they’re proud?
This Veteran put his life on the line for our country. The students’ display of blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance is a signal of how common decency has decayed under this administration. Heartbreaking. https://t.co/NuPnYu9FP4
