Nathan Phillips, a Vietnam veteran, stood dignified and unbowed in the literal face of white aggression. As expected. The MAGA hats make it easier to see, but this is older than Trump and his flock. It isn’t “kids being kids.” It is America being America.

@JamilSmith Imaging what Trump/Republicans would be saying right now if a group of Arab or Somali high school kids were surrounding and intimidating an elderly white person attending the pro-life march?

The cosmic-tearing insanity of our present has somehow made "they harassed Vietnam veterans when they returned" finally true.

In 2019, we celebrated the election of the first-ever Native women elected to Congress (@RepDebHaaland + @RepDavids). We honored Indigenous People in the United States. Yet, we are painfully reminded of the hatred that is the Kentucky that some of us know. #ThisIsAmerica

The fact that these people went out of their way to go to an INDIGENOUS PEOPLE MARCH and chant “build the wall” is so cruel. Who was here first?? INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. Not you and your white privileged ancestors.

@JamilSmith This is the A.I.M. (American Indian Movement) song. These children do not realize the great honor it is of being approached and sung to by a Native elder who happens to be a Vietnam Vet, Nathan Philips.

It’s undeniable that the MAGA hat is a modern symbol of oppression and hatred akin to the confederate flag.

@JamilSmith Ok so question. I saw the video so i just need to ask, besides him standing there with a shit eating grin, what did he do wrong? The other assholes were worse. I don’t condone him but i don’t know why people are mad at THJS kid. He just stood there defiant, yes...but didn’t act..

@JamilSmith No, it is Betsy Devos in action. This is why the vast majority of Americans support public education and critical thinking, as taught by national standards and common core. #NEA

the strength of a man who is looking a young colonizer in the eye as he sings the songs of his people and his ancestors without hesitation is what I’m choosing to focus on. I hope this child finds peace and learns his place

Don’t give him a f-ing dime for that wall @SpeakerPelosi This is the America he breeds: Racism and lies and perpetuation of hate and ignorance all in the smirk of a little shit standing with a mob in front of a Vietnam Veteran.

can’t get past this smug sneering teen, and the look of sheer arrogance as his crew of taunting friends behave like a smoldering mob. The Native American is harmless and simply chants. There is an adult in the mix too. He does nothing. What the fuck is happening in this country?

@JamilSmith So many conservatives saying "I never saw racism like this until Obama was elected" today as a way to "prove" the GOP/White America wasn't always like this. Nah, ya'll were just blind to the hatred that always existed.

@JamilSmith America should be ashamed of itself. As a former veteran of the Canada Army, I wonder what American veterans think of this young man and his school and what they represent. I know America should be better than what this young man represents and it can be!!!

@JamilSmith Sad as it is to admit, you’re right. The climate today towards difference is toxic &, n some circles, acceptable. What set me off is indifference of crowd only to find out this gentlemen is a veteran. I am disgusted & perplexed by complacency demonstrated by uneducated people.

Wow. I didn’t want to watch this because I was afraid of owning the pain of it all. As you get older, images like this are beyond disconcerting. America the Ugly. You deserve your ugly president.

This type of behaviour is despicable to the highest level. If you see this type of abhorrent act, you have an obligation to intervene. Standing by just doesn’t cut it anymore. If the world is to progress, the majority has to be better to drown this rhetoric out.

Just. Be. Kind.

@JamilSmith Those kids clearly have no upbringing. This isn't about their hats, their skin color or any political party. It's about poor parenting,

I have brown skin and have luckily never encountered any aggression resulting directly from that.

Politics ruin this country bc all that results from it is ppl opposing eachother. It is evil and corrupt AF regardless of what side you’re on. They WANT to divide and conquer. This is all against unity. No matter what the difference is, we are all one. Idk how ppl don’t get it.
