This is a summary in response to the statement put out by the boy who stood in front of Nathan Phillips and how people are reacting:
Video: *goes viral*
Mainstream media and decent people everywhere: WOW THIS IS FUCKED UP, HOW DO WE EVEN DEAL WITH THIS LEVEL OF FUCKED UP???
Nathan Phillips, Native American veteran: I was trying to diffuse the situation and these kids surrounded me and taunted me with racist chants.
Video: *shows exactly what Nathan Phillips described*
Kid who stared Nathan Phillips down in a MAGA hat with a shit-eating grin on his face while his friends laughed and jeered at Phillips, mocking him with racist chanting and gestures: No, see, I was trying to diffuse the situation by staring down an elderly Native American man with a shit-eating grin on my face while I failed to tell my classmates surrounding us to stop being racist.
Mainstream media and white moderates everywhere: OH OKAY cancel everything because the kid with the MAGA hat is definitely telling the truth and not racist, WHEW we almost had to really care about white supremacy for a second.
