Elected Official’s Ominous Tweet: ‘When You Exercise Your #WhitePrivilege, Don’t Think I’m Not Going to Remember.’

In a profile by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is called “fiery” and is said to be known for her “sometimes profane outbursts” as well as being unpredictable.

More from the Post-Dispatch:

In the last eight months alone, she’s lambasted the governor on education and African-American issues, called for the removal of the education commissioner and run a smear campaign against a fellow Democrat in a race that didn’t otherwise involve her.

On Saturday the state senator posted a series of tweets that began with “LET ME BE CLEAR”…but she appeared to up the ante with this one: “LET ME BE CLEAR: When you exercise your #WhitePrivilege, don’t think I’m not going to remember. I will use it for the future. Uncomfortable?”
