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? pic.twitter.com/sVkCXIfE89
 
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.

I hope every college admissions office in the nation watches this video.

Nathan Philips is an American hero. He and his people care about this land.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
The whole group is disgusting. Where were the chaperones, recording it? @CovCathColonels.
 
#covingtoncatholichighschool This is horrific behavior from anyone and so despicable from a child who was clearly taught to hate - HORRIFIC

His Catholic High School has failed to teach him anything about Christ. His parents failed at teaching him to be human.
 
Only a matter of time before this same disrespect (blank) kid Standing & smirking in the face of Elder Nathan Phillips will be boo-woo snot nose crying saying 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, I鈥檓 just a kid, i didn鈥檛 know what i was doing!鈥 & his parents will say social media are ruining their lives

Terrible. Their parents are failing miserably.

Not going to get political here. Who are the parents of these children? How can you feel anything but shame at this type of behavior?

Shame, shame on you, spoiled and completely uneducated children. You look like fools, and deserve to.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Covington Catholic should be embarrassed and ashamed! What are they teaching these kids?
 
 
I hope this outrage sparks awareness about the many ways indigenous peoples are still marginalized and spurs contributions to end it. I just signed up for monthly donations to the American Indian College Fund, you should too: collegefund.org @collegefund @CovCathColonels
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Thank you for identifying these jerks. Where鈥檚 the Covington Catholic Church on this?
 
In reply to @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.
 
This is horrid and is born from a culture that teaches white youth to disrespect Indigenous lives and land. This is a racist legacy. We stand by those at the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
The most annoying thing about this is that they are at THEIR march!
 
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.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
There seems to be NOTHING Christian about @CovCathColonels Any decent parent should with kids there should pull their kids out NOW! #CovCathColonelsDisgrace #CovingtonCatholicHigh pic.twitter.com/TBB3nVVxJa
 
In reply to @keithboykin
A Catholic education has done them well. So happy the teachers have instilled the central tenets of the religion in their students.
 
Make this trend! They chanted 鈥渂uild the wall鈥 in front of peaceful Natives praying and singing for the creator. These ignorant students were supposed to be participating in the pro-life protest but thought this was more important.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
These boys should be expelled.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Wow, this is powerful stuff. Look at the smug look on that kids face. Some day I hope he looks back on this and realizes he was on the wrong side of history.

Jeez. The poster child for "Punch Me and my Hateful Parents in the Face"
 
If you have ever been around people like this boy, you recognize what his smirking expression and body language are saying. They鈥檙e saying 鈥淚 am untouchable鈥 and it鈥檚 why I don鈥檛 believe white people who claim they don鈥檛 experience or knowingly have privilege and power.
 
 
In reply to @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.
 
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Exactly the audience the Gillette ad was made for. #boyswillbemen
 
The arrogant disrespect of these bigoted children is intolerable.

Where exactly...were the adults? These trips require teacher/parent chaperones....

Why would high school students do this? It鈥檚 despicable, disrespectful and inhuman. These students must be taught how to respect people whether young or old.

Seems that this school and the parents have failed miserably in teaching values. #CovingtonCatholicHighSchool #IndigenousPeoplesMarch
 
 
 
Lol this dork fucking nerd is so afraid to smile with his teeth because he 100% has braces on his horrible 15 yr old shitty fucking teeth.

Mr. Phillips teeth are probably perfect and beautiful.
 
Disrespect has consequences: School website is down: covcath.org: Covington Catholic High School is a private, all-male high school in Park Hills, . Kentucky.

And by "direct descendants," we mean, living testaments to the fact that the following common defenses are, in fact, lies: 1.) racism will simply die out when the old people do, and 2.) racism is something that happened "back then"
 
What a proud legacy they stand in. I'm so disgusted, this has ruined my entire day. But so so much respect for the elder who stood in his power, dignity, and truth in the face of this disgusting display of white supremacy and cowardice.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Disgraceful on sooo many levels.

This is why I teach history. We must not continuously repeat the injustices of our past. We must recognize the root causes and snuff them out with empathy. @ZinnEdProject
 
 
.@usbank How can you sponsor modern day Nazi youth like this? When will you denounce this behavior and ask for your sponsorship in return? @cnnbrk @nytimes @ACLU
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Despicable students! School should do some serious soul searching on the work they do day to day! Maybe they didn鈥檛 get the Catholic social justice memo??!!!!
 
All of a sudden that #Gillette ad doesn't look so offensive, now, does it?
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Please tell me these students will be identified and disciplined! I understand Catholic schools are adept at disciplining school boys. 馃あ
 
This is why the US is condemned. The ignorance runs SO DEEP its unable to save itself. WTF is this SMIRKED white privileged punk trying to convey. That he is ignorant and in Washington to be defiant? I can not stomach this at all.

In reply to @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.
 
This makes my soul scream with injustice. Who do these kids think they are coming to our city with this hate?
 
Face this head on.

Don't look away.

If you call yourself #Catholic, denounce it.

@CovCathColonels must do more than apologize...they must take action...they must face the #intolerance + #cruelty directly.
 
The ability of this elder to remain calm, collected, and composed even as a disgusting and extended display of racism is directed at him by a large mob of young people who should know better is incredible. What a hero he is.

In reply to @keithboykin
May I say, as an all-girls Catholic High School grad, these students should be ashamed of themselves, and do not represent the values I was taught in my 12 years of Catholic education.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
CONFESSION. In high school I took part in harassing & mocking an old lady that did weird things out in her yard. The cops rounded us up & took us to her house to apologize. Inside, we realized she was unwell. Her son had recently died in Vietnam. I've never felt so bad.
 
In reply to @keithboykin
Covington Catholic High School should think about adding a Civics class to their religious instruction calculus.
 
As someone who was raised Catholic I find this shameful. As a human being I find this disgusting and embarrassing.

I wonder if they know that Catholics were despised at one time in the USA. Catholic kids were ignored by school bus drivers and spat on.
 
 
These young men are just assholes.
