Teen charged with felony for science fair project

Ok boys and girls. Class is in session.

Kiera Wilmot (L), a 16-year-old African-American high school student, has been charged with a felony after an accident happened with her science fair project. A day after I read this article, I was watching a local news station and I saw this....

11-Old-Girl Loves Science - Tallahassee News | ABC 27 WTXL: News Sunrise

Notice anything different? Suppose something went wrong with one of Sylvia Todd's (R) science experiments? Would she be charged with a felony? Ironically, when I started researching Sylvia Todd, MOST of the news articles about her came out around the same time as Kiera Wilmot's incident.

Injustice? White privilege? Double standard? Or just a coincides?
