In the summer season of 2020, an article brushed up all over the world wide web that professed a Black 19- year-old guy had actually talked to a court in Florida to attempt him “as a white colored guy.”
On Aug. 7, the web site What You Expect? stated that:

Two times previously, the Oklahoma Eagle posted a short article along with the very same information. The initial model of the “Sean Jackson” account shows up to have actually been actually posted in March 2020 through Global NEA.

Global NEA carries out certainly not include a waiver or even a summary of its own result as witticism, however it carries out often release write-ups derived from Ihlayanews, a site that carries out designate its own write-ups as “witticism.”
Global NEA additionally shows up to possess a certain taste for scatalogical as well as sensationalist write-ups, even more reducing its own reputation as a resource. In spite of this shortage of reputation, seemingly severe web sites like the Oklahoma Eagle seem to have actually confused the “Sean Jackson” account as being actually real.
