The blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders Donald Trump. A group of MAGA hat wearing high school boys on a trip to DC thought it was funny to mock and threaten a Native American Vietnam Veteran during his peaceful demonstration.
The incident occurred on Friday (Jan. 18) at the D.C. National Mall. Omaha elder Nathan Phillips was singing and drumming as part of the first Indigenous People’s March.
Reports Raw Story:
Students from Covington Catholic High School in suburban Cincinnati were videotaped as they formed a mob surrounding native Americans demonstrating at a march in Washington, D.C.
According to CNN, the white Catholic students originally harassed a group of black protestors before Nathan Philips, a Native American elder of the Omaha tribe who is a veteran of the Vietnam War, stepped in to diffuse the situation.
As the video shows, the white Kentucky students then surrounded Phillips and aggressive intimidated him and spewed insults at him.
Also reportedly, the dipwads were in town for the March for Life and were team Anti-Abortion.
According to TMZ, a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington says the incident is under investigation and that the students may be expelled. “We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.”
Since the incident, info about those in charge of the racist teens has begun circulating.

The retailer has teamed with Emil Wilbekin, founder of Native Son, to create a limited-edition Pride capsule collection. The collection consists of T-shirts and hats that feature Pride-specific graphics with messages of equal rights, self-affirmation and love.
The items are priced between $ 34 and $ 75 with 10 percent of the proceeds being donated to the Native Son Foundation, an association where the gay male black community can create a safe space for fellowship, celebration and empowerment.
“Partnering with Bloomingdale’s on this Native Son Pride capsule collection is a brilliant collaboration that amplifies the messaging and mission of inspiration and empowerment for black gay men and the LGBTQ+ community,” Wilbekin said. “It’s about being proud of who we are, acceptance, equality and inclusion in the world, and supporting gender diversity.”
Bloomingdale’s will host a launch party for the collection at its 59th Street flagship on June 20. Celebrity stylists Ty Hunter and Jerome Lamaar will join Wilbekin a question-and-answer session during the event.

If your Instagram was suddenly dotted with chic snaps hailing from Tbilisi, Georgia, this past week, it’s not a complete coincidence. Catherine Baba and Natalie Joos were among the international fashion flock who headed to the Georgian capital for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi. And when they weren’t sitting by the runway, well, there was plenty of shopping to be done. Just ask Ketevan Gvaramadze, the Georgia-native, New York City–based stylist who makes the ten-hour-plus trek back to her homeland every summer to unwind—as well as to stock up on cool local goods. After all, in Tbilisi you’ll find both a flourishing trove of concept stores with top motherland designers on offer as well as open marketplaces that sell Soviet-era antiques. Here, see Gvaramadze’s guide to help you brush up on your Georgian shopping list for whenever you should make the trek to Tbilisi yourself.
Pierrot Le Fou
It’s a super-nice shop with amazing interior design and they sell a beautifully curated selection of designer clothes and accessories.
This is a new, just-opened concept shop that stocks Georgian fashion and art, ranging from clothes to paintings and furniture. At the moment they also carry two sculptures by Tamara Kvesitadze, one of my favorite Georgian artists.
Tamuna Ingorokva Atelier
She’s one of my favorite designers. You can buy anything ready-to-wear, and you can have your wedding dress designed by Tamuna [Ingorovka]—it’s every girl’s dream.
At this outdoor flea market, people sell things from their homes. Here you’ll find anything from Soviet-era passports to beautiful antiques.
If it’s traditional Georgian clothing you’re looking for, head to Samoseli Pirveli. This is a great place to buy cultural pieces like a chokhra or embroidered shoes.
