So, @NYMag’s @nhannahjones (with 100K followers) implies “the MAGA kid” was treated with “grace”, “benefit of the doubt” & ability to be “viewed as a child”

She actually R/T’d that #Covington was a case of “white supremacy”

And journalists wonder why they’re viewed negatively?
The idea of giving both kids (she cites the case of Kalief Browder) the benefit of the doubt, treating them with grace and as kids **regardless of race** doesn’t seem to have crossed her mind
Also, spoiler alert: Browder plead guilty to grand larceny. And came from a broken family with no father figure (thanks Dems and welfare state)

He later committed suicide after a lengthy stay in prison after being accused - possibly falsely - of another crime
Despite that & the fact his story was publicized by Harvey Weinstein (and woman beater Jay-Z) I can *still* see him as a 16 year old kid

And I definitely wouldn’t condemn him simply for the “crime” of being black and wearing a certain hat

Too much to ask for the #CovingtonBoys?
*Typo: @NYTmag
