    Apparently he wrote this after he heard about Manchester.

    this video is one of the most if not THE most important video for this generation. We were brought up to think that people that were different were to be excluded, when I was in primary i was called a wetback and my friend was called a cotton picker, when i was in primary i was excluded for my heritage and my accent, in primary i was told that i was fat because i didn’t have that ‘perfect’ slender figure that is desired. Until i started high school I realised that that wasn’t ok, i want everyone to know that you are perfect the way you are, lgbtq+, Latin American, black, Muslim, Asian, European you are perfect and if someone tells you otherwise tell them to suck.my.dick
