It’s been a rough few weeks in this world of ours, and Kip Moore, for one, is tired of it.
The singer took to Facebook yesterday, July 11, to share a sweet video and a message for fans and the world in general.
[adinserter block=”3″] In the video, kids play at a park while Kip plays some b-ball with some friends. Kip then sits on a bench with two men (according to Taste of Country, it’s Damien Horne of the Farm and Sam Hunt‘s guitarist Tyrone Carreker) and expresses his sadness at the fact that kids are taught to “see color” and “feel hate.”
“It’s a beautiful thing how when kids are born, they don’t see color. They don’t feel hate,” he says. “It’s a really sad thing that we teach ’em how to do both.”
The camera then pans back to the kids playing on the playground with the hashtag #BeTheChange appearing on the screen.
Along with the video, Kip shared a rather long message on Facebook. It essentially explained his upbringing and how his parents would have kicked his ass if he had used a derogatory term to describe another person of color.
Even if you don’t take the time to read the full message or watch the short video, I do like Kip’s advice to #BeTheChange.
