After being humiliated and caught in a big lie the mainstream media is on a seek and destroy mission to “get” the Covington kids, and they’ve found a new target.
They’re accusing the school of being racist by noting the use of “blackface” by some students, years ago, at sporting events.

The photo depicts several white students, some in blackface, shouting at an opposing black player.
One student from the photo, not in blackface, is sporting a logo that also mirrors the Covington emblem.
The article then goes on to describe the confrontation this weekend at the March for Life and conflates the two incidents as if they are somehow related.
As if an incident from years ago, somehow smears the MAGA wearing teens at the center of the current uproar.
Now, that said, this is another example of things not being quite what they seem.
They couldn’t destroy them because there was video so now they’re moving onto this. Do they just want to destroy them or try to justify what they’ve already done?

Even Snopes refutes that the black body paint was in any way racial, claiming “Based on comments in the BluegrassPreps message board, the intent of the black body paint was not racial but was instead a school tradition related to “black out” games, during which fans wore black to support the team.”
Lmaoooo. I was at this game SEVEN YEARS AGO. SEVEN! I’m shown in the background of this image. ITS CALLED A BLACKOUT THEME. WE HAD SCHOOL SPIRIT. WE DO THIS TO EVERY SCHOOL NO MATTER THE RACE OR ETHNICITY. Stop trying to force a fake story to drive your false narrative. https://t.co/9CRZZFxpeW
