A young girl has taken a stance in Charlotte, NC as she spoke about her thoughts on the recent shooting of Keith Scott. During a Charlotte City Council meeting earlier this week, Zianna Oliphant, took center stage as she cried while expressing her thoughts about having to bury our parents due to the injustices happening in America.
“It’s a shame that our fathers and mothers are killed and we can’t see them anymore,” she said with tears streaming down her face. It’s a shame that we have to go to their graveyard and bury them. And we have tears. We shouldn’t have tears. We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side.”
This City Council meeting, which was a first for Charlotte, was scheduled after the cities outpour on how poorly the Mayor and city police handled the shooting of Keith Scott. After days of protests which ended violently, the city gathered at City Hall to voice their issues.
