A college bound high school student criticized Black Lives Matter in his school paper and received death threats.

He tells the story at The Federalist.

I Criticized Black Lives Matter In My High School Newspaper And Got Death Threats

“If anyone wants to see a case study of the puerile politically correct campus culture that pervades modern colleges, they need only look at the incredible overreaction at the University of Missouri.” I wrote that sentence a few weeks ago, without any idea the article it introduced would initiate a firestorm of censorship, death threats, and intimidation.

As managing editor of my high school newspaper, The Centralizer of Central High School in Philadelphia, I’ve always been concerned with the issue of censorship and free speech on campus. As I’ve learned from the past few weeks, the culture of micro-aggressions, safe spaces, and political correctness many of us lament arises not from a vacuum, but from the high school classroom.

We ran my article against the protests at Mizzou, as well as against the broader narrative of the Black Lives Matter protesters, as part of a pro/con series in the print and online editions of our faculty-approved and school-sponsored newspaper.

Death Threats Ensue

The article, headlined “A Case of Overreaction,” ironically enough elicited from students, alumni, and teachers the precise brand of mindless overreaction to which the article itself alluded. Students posted on Twitter that someone ought to “shoot” me, that I must be “dealt with,” and that I will “catch these hands” in the main hallway.

They wrote that I am “a smug (expletive) that thinks his white privilege will keep him from getting popped,” and that I need to be “smoothed the (expletive) out,” two thinly veiled allusions to shooting and otherwise severe violence.
