The exploitation of a beautiful 9-year-old girl in Charlotte, North Carolina, is so disturbing that it leaves a rational thinking person to wonder how the adults in the child’s life escape charges of child abuse.

The young girl, Zianna Oliphant, spoke before the Charlotte City Council on Monday on race relations and about being black, according to The Washington Post.

…albeit, not with exactitude.

“I’ve come here today to talk about how I feel, and I feel like that we are treated differently than other people,” Zianna said. “I don’t like how we’re treated. Just because of our color — doesn’t mean anything to me.”

African-Americans represent about a third of the population in Charlotte, which has a Democratic mayor, four black city council members and a black police chief.

For the record, a 2015 article on which metropolitan areas present African-Americans the best economic opportunities, Forbes noted that Charlotte was 6th in the nation in African-American population growth since 2000.

Details likely never shared with Zianna by the adults behind her actions.

As the brave young girl continued with her address to the city council, her emotions began to get the best of her. At one point, when she paused, a woman can be heard demanding, “Do not stop!”

“I can’t stand how we’re treated,” she continued, as tears streamed down her cute face.

“It’s a shame that our fathers and mothers are killed, and we can’t even see them anymore,” she cried. “It’s a shame that we have to go to the graveyard and bury them. And we have tears…we shouldn’t have tears.

“We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side.”

Another fact that Zianna was probably not made aware of is that 72 percent of African-American births in the U.S. are out of wedlock and that 67 percent of American-American homes are single-parent homes that do not include a father.

But then, there’s only so much room in a chld’s head when filling it with propaganda designed to advance a political narrative.

Here’s another clip of her address, shared on the web by social justice warriors:
