No stranger to taking a stand, #AlyssaMilano has slammed “ #MakeAmericanGreatAgain ” hats as “the new white hood.” The actress and activist drew the comparison between the red caps sporting #Trump ’s campaign slogan and white hoods worn by members of the white supremacist hate group, the #KuKluxKlan “The red #MAGA hat is the new white hood,” Milano, 46, tweeted Sunday. “Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself.” Milano was referring to the now-viral Friday face-off between a group of male students from #CovingtonCatholic High School in #Kentucky and a #NativeAmerican Vietnam War vet.
The incident took place near the Lincoln Memorial after the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch . Videos show a Covington student, who has since identified himself as junior #NickSandmann , smirking and staring down #Omaha #TribalElder #NathanPhillips as Phillips pounds a drum near his face.
#CovingtonCatholic has a history of issues that include the recent arrest of a white male student accused of raping a girl to the point of bleeding then laughing her off, and photos of the student body in #BlackFace mocking a #AfricanAmerican basketball player of an opposing team during a school match.
