Children are now voicing their point of view over the Grand Jury decision not to indict the officer who killed Eric Garner. Kids as young as 7-years-old were out protesting police brutality in Chicago. A mother, who organized the small demonstration, brought her three daughters to the event and stood by while they spoke with local news stations. When 7-year-old Sitota Ryan was asked why she was protesting police brutality she responded with, “I don’t know,” She went on to explain “Sometimes I learn more things when I protest.”

The same mom brought her three children to a Michael Brown protest the previous week. The mother, Sarah Ryan, said she believes partaking in peaceful protests helps form the world we live in. “Doing this has made me more aware of the privileges I have,” she said. Her daughter Aidan said she believes protests are a good way to tell people when something isn’t okay. “Everyone should be treated the same”.
Her sister Sitota added, ” I think it’s nice to see how people care about black lives. I think it’s important.” One child said that she watched the video of Eric Garner being killed. She was asked how she felt about it and responded by saying, “I think it’s sad,”
About 30 people walked down the streets of Chicago chanting with their hands up while police tried to contain them to the sidewalk. They held signs that read “I can’t breathe!” and “The blood is on your hands”, a great atmosphere for children at Christmas time.

    These parents are not telling their kids the truth. They are forgetting to inform them of the civil rights act of 1964 and the implementation of Affirmative Action where it became Minority Privilege and not White privilege.

    Sounds like parents opinions coming from children. I Want some of this si called white privilege. One hundred years ago that might have been true but not now. Are you aware that the most ‘ privileged ‘ is a single black female mother? That they are listed as being able to get the most handouts? Schooling, housing, food stamps all freebie benefits and at a higher amount than a white female? I would be insulted if the admission test at college were altered or dumbed down to make sure I pass and get in and others pay for it. Testing scores different based on ethnic group. And those programs set into place was part of problem. Earn it, what ever happened to that? I respect anyone that is willing to try, that wants to better themselves. This is a 2 way street it can’t just come from whites, but yet the most racist and violent are the black community. I don’t see many of them taking responsibility, saying yes we have a problem within our ethnic community we need to work on, but let’s do it together. There will never be change in everyone and the Ferguson activities just proved alt of people right and even pulled over ones that were in the fence. I fear there will be a race war.

    Willfully ignorant white people are a huge part of the problem. There is no white privilege. It’s the black privilege that’s breaking down society. And where do black criminals get this imagined privilege of committing crime and resisting officers unhindered? From willfully ignorant white people.
