Following the tragic murder of five-year-old North Carolina boy Cannon Hinnant, several individuals have taken to social media to celebrate the death of the child on the basis of his being white.
A Florida Man went viral on social media for a makeshift meme deriding Cannon as some pro-BLM supporters attempt to swerve the narrative back onto the topic of systemic racism allegedly perpetuated by white people and reparations for slavery.
“Too agile for a hanger, but not for a bullet,” the meme read. It was posted to a redacted Facebook group, containing a picture of the young boy. The meme is presumably a reference to a coat-hanger abortion, also mocking the Hinnant family’s socioeconomic status.
The meme disgusted several social media users, who, in turn, posted about the screenshot to their respective platforms.
The Jacksonville resident believed to be responsible for the post had also posted several left-wing, anti-white and anti-cop memes on his profile.
“Even white people are sick of other white people’s racist bulls***,” one post read.
Earlier this month, National File covered how some social media users laughed about the murder of the 5-year-old, allegedly by his father’s neighbor, Darius Sessoms. One of the posts mocked Cannon’s “white privileged” head being shot while another called the killing “revenge.”
A New Jersey juvenile detention officer was suspended due to his now-deleted Facebook comment joking about how the boy, who was due to start kindergarten this week, should have “ducked” to save his life.
Additionally, a group amassing over 20,000 members called “Justice for Darius Sessoms” initially started as a distasteful troll, but quickly morphed into an ideological battleground filled with baleful content to downplay the coldblooded murder of a child.
