Following in the footsteps of President Obama, a company is out to create a “teachable moment” from the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
In a rush to judgement similar to what we saw from Obama when Cambridge, Mass., police “acted stupidly” in arresting black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., the company is out to “educate white America about the racist reality in 2014.”
FCKH8.com, described on its website as a “for-profit T-shirt company with an activist heart,” created a video ad featuring six young black kids who are said to live on the same street where Brown was fatally shot by a white police officer, according to the company.
The children are wearing t-shirts that read: “Racism isn’t over, but I’m over racism.”
With a lot of “attitude,” the children mock and ridicule the target audience as they repeat a number of stereotypes about how “white people” view racism.
While no one knows for certain what happened the day Brown was killed, and the officer involved has yet to tell his side of the story, the kids call the incident a “national disgrace,” saying “white police shot an unarmed black teen in the face.”
Quotes from the video, “Hey White People,” according to Gateway Pundit:
“We just want an equal shot in life, not to be shot to death.”
“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.”
“Employers don’t even have to see the color of our skin for the discrimination to begin. Resumes with ‘black sounding’ names like Tanisha and Tyron are 50% less likely to get called in for a job interview than the exact same resumes with white sounding names.”
Kid Mocking White Person: “Some of my best friends are black.” Kid Sarcastically Holding Cookie: “You get a cookie!”
Toward the end of the video, a white man appears to tell us we all have to “do our part,” which includes sending $13 to the company for one of the t-shirts.
“Us white people, we have to erase it; and the first step is to own up and face it,” he declares in rap style rhythm.
