Nine-Year-Old Confronts School Board, Demands BLM Posters Get Taken Down

A nine-year-old elementary student has gone viral after reading her scathing letter at a Minnesota area School Board meeting. The girl, who only identified herself as Novalee, confronted the school board over its refusal to remove Black Lives Matter posters despite its “no politics in school” rule.

In her letter, Novalee recalled being “so mad” when she saw a Black Lives Matter and Amanda Gorman poster at her school.

“The other day, I was walking down the hallway at Lakeville Elementary School to give a teacher a retiring gift,” she said. “I looked up onto the wall and a BLM poster and an Amanda Gorman poster. In case you don’t know who that chick is, she’s some girl who did a poem at Biden’s so-called inauguration. I was so mad.”

Novalee argued that she was told two weeks prior about the school board’s “no politics in school” ruling. When she approached her principal to take the posters down due to the board’s rule, he refused and said the posters were made by the school board.

“I was stunned. When I was here two weeks ago, you told us to report any BLM in our schools,” Novalee continued. “Apparently, you know they’re in our schools because you made the signs. I said there should be no BLM in schools, period. [It] does not matter the color you make the posters, and the font you use. We all understand the meaning. It is a political message about getting rid of police officers, rioting, burning buildings down while King Gov. [Tim] Walz just sits on his throne and watches.”

The young girl continued by stating she doesn’t judge people based on the color of their skin. She also referenced Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech and said his dream has come true.

“That dream has come true,” she added. “I do not care or look at the color of skin, but you make me think of it.”

Novalee expressed her disappointment in the school board and felt she was lied to. She ended her letter by demanding the posters be removed from schools.
