Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

Racism is not over, but these kids from Ferguson, Missouri, are way over it.

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

According to FCKH8, the kids in the video come from homes on the same Ferguson street where a police officer shot to death unarmed teen Michael Brown on Aug. 9, sparking several weeks of unrest in Ferguson.

"Just because Beyoncé is on your playlist and you voted for Obama doesn't mean that our generation has seen the end of racist drama," the kids, who range in age from 6 to 13, say. They add later, "We just want an equal shot at life, not to be shot to death."

Check out the video, above.
