It is 100% hypocrisy that @Tahtone, president of @najournalists, is seen as the moral compass on racism, harassment and intimidation in the wake of the #MAGATeen mob in DC. This man admitted to calling me "racist" to industry colleagues months ago. My evidence-based thread here:
2/18: Here's the email where @Tahtone admitted to the defamation saying that his character assault on me was somehow exclusive of his two leadership roles with NAJA and also as Assoc. Editor of High Country News. Sorry, but that's not how leadership works:
3/18: The pettiness stems from June 2017 when I criticized an NPR pilot project about Native American treaties.

Dear @arlenparsa, Thank you for the inspirational and comforting tweet #CovingtonCatholic #Magateen. Basic stuff is falling apart all around us and we are looking depraved on so many fronts. It’s nice to see that we have choices.
You have shown us that there is a high road, a smarter road, and we are free to take it. #Media impose a certain behavioral framework, but we can choose to engage at a higher level like you did. It takes more work and more commitment, but it’s ultimately so much more crucial.
We found the #CNN coverage disgraceful & unprofessional. What these #kids did was unquestionably reprehensible. But they are simply ignorant at this stage of their development. Are they the racist bigots of tomorrow? More than likely, but one may still hold out #hope for them.

Okay, I'm sick of the BS everybody is spinning, so I made a map reconstructing what happened in DC from a 1.5h long video from the scene.

Note: I call out everyone who are clearly being assholes. It's not because of their race - it's because they're acting like assholes.
The video:

And here's a shorter clip that highlights #MAGAteen intentionally moving into Phillips path from several yards away.

Hey Twitter, we need to have a talk.

Last night I learned & confirmed the name of the "main student" from the #CovingtonCatholic incident. The kid grinning in front of the Native elder.

Hop in this thread because I'm going to walk you through some deep but important stuff. 1/?
Finding the #CovingtonCatholic student's identity was not easy.

He is not pictured in any of the school's many (many!) pics of student athletes on their website, apparently because he doesn't play sports.

But I sifted through a lot. Because I was so upset at that video.
I have reviewed the student's Facebook account, seen family photos, and even talked with another student who knows him.

The ID is 100% iron-clad.
