Six Black kids from #Ferguson, MO bluntly and sarcastically educate white America about the racist reality in 2014. Recruited from the very block where unarmed Black teen Michael Brown was gunned down by a white police officer, these kids ranging in age from 6 to 13 years old, use sometimes uncomfortable humor to show white people the continued racism their generation faces. Armed ONLY with statistics (hands up, don’t shoot) these articulate and adorable kids are not having it while much of white America would rather pretend racism is over.

Sporting charity benefit T-shirts that read “Racism Is Not Over. But I’m Over Racism.” these kids from #Ferguson are helping raise funds for five different anti-racism causes. For every tee or hoodie sold at http://FCKH8.com $5 is donated to make a difference (details @ http://FCKH8.com) with the bold tees that make a statement starting at $13. Join the cause @ http://FCKH8.com.

    I liked it. I went over to youtube to see the reaction…yeah. It’s as bad as what you’re thinking and then some, in other words, completely giving the video validity.

    Um this is cool and all, but I feel some kind of way about “merchandise activism”. I went over to their website to see if they even listed the charities they donate to, and unless I’m missing something, there was no list to be found. This reminds me of Kony2012 and Invisible Children appealing to young folks who think that by wearing a cool t-shirt, they’re changing the world. It’s nice to raise awareness, don’t get me wrong. But I’ll donate my money directly to the charities I support.

    Also, something about putting one of their tshirts at a Michael Brown memorial struck me as a little exploitative…

      I agree with you. I too researched the site and the founders and found out they were White. While I was watching it it felt contrived and no soul so I wasn’t surprised . Then it felt as though they were using these youth as a part of their agenda and not really about making a difference because these youth were spouting off these sayings that are perpetuating the hate that they want to eradicate. And then the website’s name, to me- a mother of three- seems inappropriate for the youth to be associated with. All in all it seems more exploitive of our people and the cause at hand.
