[Ed. – Hand gesture? Will that replace the dog whistle?]
CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers bizarrely claimed on Monday that Covington Catholic High School students referred to a black classmate as a racial slur with silent hand gestures to their harassers — who were actually saying the word.
The alleged gesture occurred in the lead up to a confrontation between some of the school’s students and a Native American activist on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during Friday’s March for Life event in Washington, D.C.
The Black Hebrew Israelites … compare the students to dogs and hyenas and challenge them to a fight. At one point, as Powers notes, the harassers shouted at the students: “Ya’ll got one n***er in the crowd!”
The CNN analyst then claims one of the two students who responded to the slur, held up one finger — in her mind, “apparently referring to the one black boy in the group.”
Also at 1:18 the harassers yell "Y'all got one n***** in the crowd!" One of the boys turns around and holds up two fingers…another holds up one finger apparently referring to the one black boy in the group.
How is this "shockingly little evidence of wrongdoing" — your words https://t.co/IvgXff490R
