The campaign came after the shooting death of an unarmed person, Michael Brown, by a police officer, Darren Wilson. The shooting revealed that racial tensions in Missouri existed and called to end the violence and racism.

To support FCKH8's campaign to end racism, you can buy a t-shirt, bracelet, or hoodie that shares the same slogan as the kids in the video, “Racism Is Not Over. But I’m Over Racism.”
