Oliphant is a 9 year-old girl who delivered a very moving and powerful plea to the Charlotte City Council. Her speech is now going viral all over the news and social media. In her speech she says :
“We are black people and we shouldn’t have to feel like this. We shouldn’t have to protest because y’all are treating us wrong. We do this because we need to and have rights.”
She also reminded the council that parents are being killed and coming from a kid it’s very troubling to know that those are facts. Watch clips from her moving speech below.
