Many people believe racism is taught. If so, it is taught at a young age. One example of this is a nine-year-old student in Lakeville, Minnesota. The child’s name is very befitting, Novalee, and she does not appreciate Black Lives Matter posters.
In a viral video, Novalee went before her local school board to raise her concerns about the school district banning political messages while allowing Black Lives Matter posters, reported News 4, San Antonio.
Dripping in racism and envy, Novalee claimed that as she was walking down the hall of her elementary school, she looked up and saw a poster of Black Lives Matter and the image of Amanda Gorman, the first National Youth Poet Laureate. Gorman famously read her poem “The Hills We Climb” at the Biden inauguration.
“I looked up onto the wall and saw a BLM poster and an Amanda Gorman poster. In case you don’t know who that chick is, she’s some girl who did a poem at Biden’s so-called inauguration. I was so mad. I was told two weeks ago at this very meeting spot: no politics in school. I believed what you said at this meeting,” Novalee said.
What makes this story interesting is that Novalee is from a city about 30 minutes from where George Floyd was murdered by ex-officer Derek Chauvin.
As evidence that Novalee is not just a brainwashed white child likely being raised by people who would attempt to justify the Capitol riot, but your average Karen-in-training, she further expressed a totally inaccurate portrait of the Black Lives Matter Movement.
“Getting rid of police officers, rioting, burning buildings down while King Governor Walz just sits on his throne and watches,” the student said.
Yes, that sounds exactly like something that a nine-year-old child would come up with over her morning coffee.
To close out her parents’…we mean her speech…Novalee did what every white person trying to pretend they aren’t racist– quoted Dr. Martin Luther King.
The best part of Novalee’s speech was that certain grammatical errors let us know that whichever parent wrote it probably spent too much time worried about posters when they were in school.
As funny as this is, what is not funny is her parents using her as a political pawn. Of course, they might have jobs they need to keep so they won’t spout their racism on camera. In that case, instead of sacrificing their child on social media, they could have remained silent.
George Floyd. Daunte Wright. Novalee. Minnesota must be very proud.
