13. If he were a 17-year-old Muslim shouting down a white Christian

he wouldn't be "just a kid." He'd be a "terrorist" and the only questions would have been about when and how he was radicalized.

If he were a 17-year-old Hispanic aggresively challenging a white politician, he wouldn't be "just a kid." He'd be an "illegal" who needs to be deported (even if he was born here).

And if he'd been a 17-year-old black male who got in any white person's face, he wouldn't be "just a kid." He'd be dead.

So, I'm not impressed that this privileged white guy was "just a kid." Yes, his parents and school shoulder some of the blame, but he's old enough to know better and to make his own choices and he chose to behave like a racist thug. That's on him.
