The Parkland kids kept checking their privilege in front of hundreds of thousands at #MarchForOurLives last weekend

11 year old Naomi Wadler spoke on behalf of all of the “African-American girls whose stories don’t make the front page of every national newspaper.” She led a walkout at her elementary school on March 14 as part of the national effort to bring attention to gun violence in American schools. She said she and her peers stood outside for 18 minutes, a minute longer than many schools around the country had planned to walkout. They added a minute, she said, for Courtlin Arrington, a black girl who was killed in a school shooting in Alabama after the massacre in Parkland.
