This actually happened. Warrants issued for the arrest of black people in Mississippi who applauded at a graduation ceremony. Well, they were told to hold their applause. AND THEY DIDN’T. So there ya go. Consequences.
Senatobia Municipal School District Superintendent Jay Foster filed ‘disturbing the peace’ charges against the people who yelled at graduation.
Officers issued warrants for their arrests with a possible $500 bond.
“It’s crazy,” Henry Walker said. “The fact that I might have to bond out of jail, pay court costs, or a $500 fine for expressing my love, it’s ridiculous man. It’s ridiculous.”
Superintendent Foster said the charges were far from ridiculous.
Oh yeah they are. Pretty damn ridiculous.
Hear about the white guy who got some flack for walking through an airport with an AR-15. Think a black person would have gotten more than just some flack?
And they wonder why people are angry. When assholes abound there will be anger.
