University Instagram post says Rittenhouse killed ‘two beautiful black lives’

Both were white criminals

James Madison University’s Instagram page contained a video of an NAACP student leader saying that Kyle Rittenhouse killed two black people in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

A jury found Rittenhouse not guilty in the killing of two white men named Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber. Rosenbaum was a convicted child rapist who can be seen on video yelling “shoot me n***a” at armed men. Huber was “found guilty of a felony for strangulation and suffocation, domestic abuse,” Heavy.com reported.

Deaquan Nichols posted the video on JMU’s official Instagram story page. He began the post by saying that a crew is filming a documentary about him.

“I simply wanted to publicly announce that the verdict with the Kyle Rittenhouse case has been nothing more than a disgusting reminder about what it really means to be black in America…. We scream black lives matter but it doesn’t really matter,” Nichols, a member of the campus NAACP group said.

He said “the jury, the judge, anybody” did not find black lives valuable enough to charge “this man, with murdering and taking away two beautiful black lives at the ripe ages of 26 and 36,” Nichols said.

The university said its social media is not supposed to be used for making political statements.

“One of yesterday’s takeovers went into the personal opinion and viewpoints of a student, which are not necessarily reflective of the university,” spokesperson Mary Hope-Vass told The Breeze, JMU’s campus paper.

Virginia Republican Congressional candidate Tina Ramirez posted the video on her Twitter.

“JMU is a publicly funded university that is now pushing political propaganda and misinformation from their social media accounts,” Ramirez wrote in a Twitter post. “JMU’s actions are unethical, as Kyle Rittenhouse was found innocent, and dangerous, as the post pushes false info that could lead to violence.”
