McKenzie Adams, driven to suicide at the age of 9 by bullies just because she had a white boy as a friend. Let that sink in for a moment. This beautiful young girl couldn’t bear to go on living because of the ignorance of adults, passed down to their children. This needs to stop! pic.twitter.com/RIAjdd5TKZ
