Twitter is never a good place to vent about how a tragedy is stealing your spotlight, or anywhere for that matter:
The deadly terror attacks in Paris killed at least 129, but to some protesters in the Black Lives Matter movement and at the University of Missouri, it’s all about them.
Student protests and outrage over the school’s handling of racial issues has brought national attention to the school — which some students have come to define as a hotbed of racism. Recent racist incidents led to protests including one student’s hunger strike and a threatened boycott by the football team. The university system president and the campus chancellor resigned.
After at least 129 people were killed in coordinated attacks on Friday in Paris, several protesters took to Twitter to express anger at “losing the spotlight” in the media.
