White privilege of Parkland activists

"Black survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, say that the gun control debate that has been raging since the tragedy has largely overlooked them — and argue that recent moves to increase school safety by increasing security would actually put them more at risk.

At a press conference Wednesday, black students said that they were being ignored in coverage of Parkland, noting that media coverage hasn’t reflected the fact that their school is 11 percent black.

“I am here today with my classmates because we have been thoroughly underrepresented and, in some cases, misrepresented,” student Tyah-Amoy Roberts said."

More likely, the leftist media just find the "if you like guns, you have blood on your hands" schtick more politically important than their token minority.
