Keaton Jones is a kid. He couldn’t help the alleged “racist” family he was born into. Racism is wrong, of course, but it’s not his fault! The internet is now quick to add to it because his mum might or might not have said something racist? Have a heart! In case you’ve forgotten, it’s about Keaton… It was Keaton who went viral for crying for help. Yes, his mum featured in the video, but it’s him that’s suffering. It’s him that we felt compassion and empathy towards.
As someone who has witnessed bullying first hand, I would never wish it on anyone. If the rumours are true, and his mother did say or act in an unforgiving way, I’m sure Keaton himself was/is mortified. I’m sure he knows how it feels to be shunned, treated disrespectfully, name-called etc…
Don’t blame a kid for his parent’s actions. A lot of us are born with family members – distant or immediate – that we clash with or that we don’t believe act in a morally correct way… That does not mean for a second that we, ourselves, are that way inclined. Especially a kid that age… He’s still young. He’s got a lot to learn. We need to strengthen him, build him up and make sure he doesn’t end up doing something tragic like trying to end his life, NOT lambasting him based on assumptions/rumours surrounding his family, who – again – if proven correct, should’ve known better.
Be there for a kid who’s suffering and don’t tear shreds out of them just because their family may or may not have said or done something racist… Until there’s clear evidence that he (Keaton) was racist, I won’t think any less of him.

Disclaimer: the lady who completed my order (creating this logo for me) was an absolute babe! Her advert states that all orders usually take four days to make, but she enjoyed my concept/idea so much that she did in less than one day. Can you tell that I am so thrilled with it already?!
