It’s a stretch, but we can get there. A white teen is on trial for killing two white men. However, these two white men were at a Black Lives Matters protest and were expressing their anger at the shooting of Jacob Blake by, as the prosecution itself testified, tipping over portable toilets, setting dumpsters on fire, swinging chains around, and tipping over a trailer in the middle of the road and setting it on fire to block traffic.
So it’s because these three “selfless heroes” were rioting in the name of racial justice that this trial has become about race. Rittenhouse went to Kenosha to help protect businesses that should have been burned down in the name of racial justice, so he’s a white supremacist.
We wondered if Gregory McKelvey was a parody account, but he has his pronouns in his bio and says he’s the vice-chair of the Oregon Dems Black Caucus. So he’s the real deal, and he really thinks employers should give blacks a couple of days off after the verdict because either way, it’s going to be hard for them to work.
Employers, consider giving your Black employees a day or two off after the Rittenhouse verdict. Regardless of the outcome, it’s going to be hard for Black people to work and it isn’t fair to expect them to.

Because a white guy shot three other white guys?

What’s funny is until I started watching the trial, I was led to believe that everyone Kyle shot was black. Turns out the victims are all white. Who knew 💁🏻♂️

Why is it going to hard for black people or anyone for that matter to work. He was charged has been tried and a verdict will be rendered. The system at work.

Black person here. Please explain to me how this case has anything to do with Black people

It’s amazing how some people are even allowed to be on social media at all.
— hammytime (@hammytime10) November 16, 2021
Can you point to me on the doll where this has anything to do with black people, why they need time off work, and why they would be affected with the outcome of a trial where a white guy shot 3 white people in self-defense; killing two of those white people?
— Jay C. (@iamthejayc) November 16, 2021
You just infantilized black people, and that sounds racist since you think they can't deal with the situation like mature adults.

Imagine thumbing that tweet out, proofreading it, thinking about hitting the send button, rereading the tweet, and hitting the send button anyway. All that while sporting a blue check mark.

If I was black, I’d feel INCREDIBLY patronized and condescended to if I read this. Jesus.

Suppose Rittenhouse is found guilty of all counts — African Americans will still need a couple of days off to sort through their feelings?
