The race stuff will go with Obama,who started it back up from the 70s in 2008.
Soros Financed the operation.
Hillary is cut from the same cloth so SHE will do it as well.
Fear of being a racist was the only factor? Other than that everything else was hunky dory?
But, I'm guessing you have another interpretation...you just didnt share it because nobody said please.
Multi-millionaire football player won't stand for the national anthem because blacks are oppressed by whites.
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
#stopwhitepeople2k16 trending on Twitter, you know, because white people are racist.
"Stop White People" is one of those alarming phrases that carries a much different context for the internet savvy. In short, it is a meme and a popular hashtag used to either satirize, poke fun or criticize what internet denizens believe to be stereotypically "white" behavior.

Sixteen years old, and things are so bad that ending your life is the only alternative?
I suspect there was a bit more going on there than that...but maybe not.
My niece contemplated ending her life at 16, too. I thank god nearly daily that she didn't. Her issue was being bullied, if that picture led to that sort of issue in her life, then yes, I could see suicide appearing to be her only acceptable option...which doesn't say a great deal for her parents or other adults in her life.

He had taken her home early due to her feeling unwell but found his daughter hanged when he returned after work.
"There had been some negative reaction and she confided in her friend, who did take the image down at her request, that she was scared of what the reaction might be from the Asian community in her area."

What Phage is implying is reasons why people commit suicide are usually complex. There might be a trigger event or straw that broke the camels back event that drive them over the edge, but suicide is rarely carried out for just one reason. It usually takes a long time for a person to build to it, each disappointment or frustration adding to the eventual decision to take ones own life.
Seems to me the other reason involved a boy friend and his parents. Since I guess she wasn't Asian it caused difficulties in there relationship. And one thing about teenagers they think relationships are a lot more serious at that age than they are.
