Black girl who accused white classmates of cutting her hair in hate attack now says it was a hoax https://t.co/koM21iFLoL— Disrn (@DisrnNews) September 30, 2019
I'm being serious here, not snarky. Maybe she was having a really bad week. Maybe her Instagram selfies hadn't gotten a lot of likes and she wasn't invited to the Cool Girls sleepover the week before. Those kinds of things mean a lot. In concrete terms, her Hate hoax wasn't any different than a thousand CNN panel discussions where they all effectively agreed that if we just did away with this word or that statue, then a 73% illegitimacy rate wouldn't be a big deal.
Having raised a girl and seen what they go through over social standing anxieties, it's no wonder someone like her decided to put on a Monica Rambeau costume and go join the Superfriends at the MSNBC Hall of Social Justice.
