Kids marching alongside parents has the littlest among us making history.
(YOUNG CHILD, NICO, SAYING):
“I’m black and I’m proud. They’re all here to support me.”
Nico joined his family for a peaceful protest in Brooklyn, New York, Tuesday – and five-year-old Emily told Reuters why she was there with her family, too.
“The police are shooting the brown people.”

“What can we do to make sure that that stops?”
“Take their guns away and give them a new job.”

“I wish that everything was fair right now, but they're not, sadly."
