“A high school valedictorian alleges her school silenced her after she went off-script in her commencement speech and listed the names of black teens killed by police brutality.

Rooha Haghar, the valedictorian at Emmett J. Conrad High School in Dallas, Texas, initially included the names of black teens, including Trayvon Martin and Tamir Rice, who were killed by police force in her speech. That was until she was told by a teacher and principal Temesghen Asmerom to cut them out after an initial review.

"When I first read my speech to my teacher, I was told mentioning those names will incite anger towards white people, a group which according to him experience high levels of discrimination of America," she wrote in a statement on Twitter, adding that those lines allegedly broke a "valedictorian speech guideline" that she says was inaccessible to her.”

They don't want their wrong doings aired like that. But, they are too late everything they do against Black people is blasted. And the U.S. is losing a lot of respect. Other countries resent the U.S. preaching human rights, they quickly point out "you preach human rights to us, look at how you treat Black people".
