The Tragic Racial Politicizing of the Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

“As soon as the ‘not guilty’ verdict was announced in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, I posted the news on Facebook and Twitter, asking readers if they agreed with the decision. The vast majority did agree, as the video evidence and verbal testimony pointed to Rittenhouse acting in self-defense. For others, however, this was another example of ‘white privilege’ or ‘white supremacy.’ And that, quite tragically, will be one of the lasting legacies of this case: it will be used to further inflame racial tensions when this was never really about race.” (11/20/21)
