.@latoya_aroha is here, talking about her experience at the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch in DC. She lost her brother Wayne Fella Morrison who died in custody in 2016. The inquest is part-heard. #InvasionDay
Here’s some details about Wayne Fella Morrison’s death. There is some CCTV of how he was handled before being put into a transport van, where he died. A warning: it is confronting. theguardian.com/australia-news… #DeathsInside
Latoya says she protests every year, “and I am fucking sick of it. Because every year I keep crying, and every year people keep dying.”

She says we need to centre healing in the debate. “Me being here today, this is part of my healing.” #InvasionDay

Hiiiii. One small rant before I get to work regarding the #CovingtonCatholic students. (FWIW I went to a nearby Catholic school Newport Central Catholic & dated a guy at CovCath my senior year of HS so I grew up in this very area & community)
Reports claim black men were harassing the white students with “racist & homophobic slurs.” Let me make one thing clear f*ggot is a slur that has been reclaimed by some gay men but is not acceptable for use as an insult, especially from straight folks.
That said: White boy & cracker, ARE NOT RACIST SLURS. There are no racist slurs for white ppl bc white surpremacy is the structure of racism which aids rather than harms white ppl. No one was racist toward those kids. White men in #MAGA hats are the embodiment of racism.

I've been watching videos all day. I have one thing to say (in a bunch of tweets, so hold on): The videos BACK UP/STRENGTHEN Mr. Nathan Phillips' account of what happened toward the conclusion of the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch on Saturday. They also reveal how it all happened. 1/
1. I attended the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch from 8:30am-1pm. We started on the stairs of the Department of Interior and marched to Lincoln Memorial. The spirit was peaceful. The call was for indigenous people and allies to receive the wisdom of the elders/remember who we are. 2/
2. While I was at #IPMDC19 at Lincoln Memorial I neither saw, nor heard any competing rally or street preachers. I did see a huge group that took up most of the steps. They took a picture on the Lincoln Memorial steps. Many in the group seemed to have red caps. 3/

The pack of reprehensible, racist boys in MAGA hats mocking an elder at Friday's #IndigenousPeoplesMarch on the National Mall are from Covington Catholic High School [859-491-2247] in KY [@senatemajldr]. Superintendent @supmikeclines was in DC with them.

Most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the next generation of white male “Christian” Republicans. This happened after I left the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch at Lincoln Memorial yesterday. Native elder surrounded and jeered by #MarchForLife group.
This group took a picture at top of steps earlier. One boy clearly has a #MarchForLife T-shirt on. From this angle it is clearer what’s happening. The instigator is challenging the Native elder for the space. The group cheers over elder’s song. #IPMDC19

Racist #MarchForLife participants harass & mock this elderly Native American man at Indigenous Peoples March

In other words—while claiming to protest abortion, they mock Native Americans for protesting genocide of their babies😳

Incomprehensible hate😓
The racist students are from @CovCathColonels, who have since protected their Twitter account.

I’m contacting Principal Robert Rowe at browe@covcath.org to ask if they endorse this racist mockery of Native Americans & how they’ll address this racism?
#WhereWereTheyRadicalized?
Here’s another angle that shows the full mob of #MarchForLife racists from @CovCathColonels mocking & ridiculing Native Americans—whose only crime was peacefully protesting genocide.😓

Unacceptable.
