A newly circulated video from a high school walkout has Twitter users shaking their heads in disappointment.
"Y'all so a High school had a walkout today, and this lil yt girl had said this [sic]," reads the beginning of the 18-second video.
All attention is then on the student in question, speaking in front of a crowd with a microphone.
"I am so glad that years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, the first Black man, ended slavery. 'Cause if not, people would be whipped every day," she passionately stated.
