The Left loves to make family events political, apparently. A college student, Rachel Malstrom, at the University of Maryland wore a ‘Black Lives Matter t-shirt, was asked to cover it up, and she used it to become a viral Twitter sensation:
“I don’t see ‘Black Lives Matter’ as a political statement. Black lives matter and black people don’t deserve to die — nothing political about that,” wrote [Rachel] Malstrom, who added that the experience has been an eye-opener.
“White privilege is real. Would my tweet have gone viral and accumulated so much praise if I wasn’t white? Probably not. It’s heartbreaking to see myself treated as a ‘hero’ for simply advocating for basic human rights.”
