Uncertainty surrounding the shooting caused a great deal of frustration among the locals who claimed Brown’s death was a result of racist violence and that the American police forces racially discriminate against their targets.
However, not everyone shared this view.
During the Ferguson riots, a number of people alleged that Brown’s shooting had nothing to do with racism. Some went as far as saying that he was rather a criminal than a victim and that the protesters were playing the “race card” to highlight a problem that doesn’t exist.
For all such folks in denial, six kids from Ferguson have the following message:
“Racism is not over, but I’m over racism.”
FCKH8 – a for-profit online T-shirt retailer “with an activist heart and a passionate social change mission” – created the video.
The company recruited six young black kids from Ferguson, reportedly from the same block where Brown was fatally shot.
According to its website, FCKH8 donates $5 out of every $13 dollars spent on T-shirts to charities working to fight racism.
Watch the Ferguson kids explaining race issues in the video posted above.
