The MAGA-hat wearing Covington Catholic High School students mocking Elder Nathan Phillips at the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington are direct descendants of the white privilege that empowered white kids to mock Elizabeth Eckford at Little Rock Central High School in 1957.

When are these people going to learn to stop vilifying the people of color whose suffering and oppression enabled their privilege?

The Covington Catholic High School students also make the case why the Gillette ad last week was so important. It鈥檚 time for men to show some leadership and end the 鈥渂oys will be boys鈥 culture that excuses bullying of oppressed groups.

@keithboykin High school boys can be cruel. What bothers me is this kid is probably in DC for the Pro-Life March. That says volumes about what he does not understand about respect for all life, his faith, or a loving God. What a sad loser moment for him. 馃槥馃槨

The MAGA hat is a symbol of hatred and white supremacy. They are also worn by students to public schools in most communities in America. What message are we sending to our students of color by allowing this hate speech in our schools? This video is sickening.

I don't tweet politics, so I will call this a tweet on human decency. This behaviour is reprehensible and goes against everything that a Catholic education represents. If this behavior has been reported in accurate context, this school and diocese must take action.

@keithboykin It's a shame that these kids are at a Catholic institution and do not live the message of Jesus. My understanding of my faith is that we should not treat others like this. Sad that people behave like this. We need to respect the dignity if ALL people.

@keithboykin Covington Catholic has made its Twitter account private. They are clearly in a bunker mentality.

Of course they should be ashamed of their students.

That said, this is NOT a blanket condemnation of Catholic/Christian education.

But this school has much soul searching to do.
