If This Is How The Nice Kids Think, Imagine How The Not-So-Nice Ones Feel

, , , , ,

These aren’t “bad” kids in the video. They don’t intend to be mean or judgmental, and definitely not racist. They’re just average kids, and most of them probably have great parents, just like Mikayla’s. That’s what makes the content of this video so shocking.
