If there’s one thing we all know to be true, kids never tell a lie.
And the video above proves that theory to be 100 percent true.
In honor of Black History Month, the Because We Can photo campaign gathered a bunch of the future leaders of America to discuss their thoughts on the Stacey Dash controversy.
If you aren’t aware, the Bronx native recently made some very questionable remarks — one in particular stating she believes there shouldn’t be a Black History Month because Black people “are Americans.”
Well, it seems as if the children in the video did not agree with Stacey at all.
One child said, “Black History month is our time to acknowledge our strength, confidence and our beauty. And It didn’t begin with slavery. No negativity, no stereotypes, all excellence. We’re not canceling anything!”
All of the photographs were shot by Eunique Jones, who has shot similar campaigns. Some of her most notable being children dressed up as iconic people of color.
In an interview with XO Necole, the photographer said, “[My] inspiration comes from my sons… Looking at my boys, who were both born during the President Obama election and re-election, they have this amazing opportunity. Like, [growing] up, we didn’t see that. I didn’t know what a black president looked like. But my sons will think it’s strange when the next election takes place if there isn’t a black president because that’s all they know. So I draw 99 percent of my inspiration from them.”
Right on, Eunique.
