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

    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.

    Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.

    THIS IS THE SHIT

    WATCH THE VIDEO AND BUY A SHIRT!

    FCKH8 is shit but this is good.

    On this day in 1898, the Empress Elisabeth of Austria was assassinated by Italian anarchist Luigi Lucheni while walking along the promenade at Lake Geneva. The charismatic, beautiful and rather eccentric Empress, who was also Queen of Hungary and familiarly known as ‘Sisi’, still continues to exert a fascination to this day.
