What’s being called a “kids party” - though I’m thinking that term’s being used loosely here - is going viral on social media, and for all the wrong reasons.

It’s not clear from the video exactly when it was filmed, or where it’s hailing from, though some have reported it’s from Louisiana. In the clip, which has been viewed millions of times on X, several elementary-age Black children can be seen picking up what appear to be real (and hopefully unloaded) firearms while waving around handfuls of cash to the heavy beat of loud rap music.

The barely legible logos and decorative rainbow castle motifs on the wall suggest the clip is being filmed at a children’s play place called "Play Cafe," not a home. Multiple male adults - one standing with a toddler on his shoulders - can be seen in the background behind the dancing children, laughing and moving to the beat, while cigars, fake diamonds, and what look to be real bottles of champagne cover the table. Several adults encourage the kids to keep playing with the guns and money, while whoever's filming the scene laughs and cheers.

Internet users had a few opinions.

Just a suggestion here, but maybe mean cops, Christopher Columbus, and suburban white people aren't the issue here.
