In a press release Tuesday, Nickelodeon announced that Kids, Race and Unity: A Nick News Special will air June 29 and will feature singer Alicia Keys and Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders answering kids’ questions.
“Talking about race can be sensitive and uncomfortable; and sometimes we try to protect our children from racism they are already experiencing. But honestly, there is no way around this topic if we want to move forward in any kind of meaningful way,” Keys said.
“What’s happening in the world is not just a problem for the Black community, it’s all of our problem and we have to care about it in order to change it!” she added. “This is such an important, vulnerable, honest and beautiful conversation, and I know many families may be searching for the right way to enter it. Let’s really deep dive together.” Keys will speak to BLM co-founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi.
If only a kid would ask about the radical Marxist platform of Black Lives Matter. But we all know this show will feature not truth but propaganda.
