The @NRA is always boasting about teens who fend off perpetrators with guns, but they’re strangely silent when it’s Black teens. This was self-defense by a child who was being sex trafficked and raped. #CyntoiaBrown
The @NRA also never weighed in on the case of Bresha Meadows, a Black girl jailed at 14 after she shot her abusive father - she was incarcerated for nearly a year before activists demanded prosecutors keep her case in juvenile court. theroot.com/the-story-of-b…
Yet when the teens are white, the @NRA lauds their action and bravery. These teens in these NRA tweets are all white.
Demand Tennessee Governor @BillHaslam act on behalf of #CyntoiaBrown.
