Adults aren't very good at dealing with their problems, but third graders apparently have it all figured out. Kelly Cohen, a reporter for NBC Washington, recently took to Twitter to share a piece of homework reportedly from one of her friend's third grade students.
Kids can be absolutely brutal, and Josiah is definitely in the resistance despite their young age.
You can probably guess why Cohen's friend was so proud of her student's answer that she had it hanging pride of place in her apartment.
Some users weren't happy with the third grader's perception of Africa.
The fact that you think this is funny and can't see the incredibly insulting failure in this child's education is shocking. Or perhaps you also think we're over here starving in our huts with our pet lions which is even more scary.— The Anomaly🌼 (@ndapewoshali_a) January 1, 2018
While some pinned the blame on the media.
This kid probably got the idea that he would starve in Africa from all the adults that say "think of the children in Africa" to get their kids to eat their meals. Let's stop using toxic rhetorics 2k18— Maia (@Maiastockwell) January 2, 2018
Yo the kid is a 3rd grader. Chill tf out. He’ll learn more about things when he gets in a higher grade. Goodness. It’s not his fault people show sad commercials on tv. We’re in 2018 and people are getting offended by something a little kid wrote. Wow.— Jenna Orsburn🌙 (@reneeOrsburn) January 2, 2018
Y’all really can’t be mad at this kid because honestly it’s what they teach us Unless I went to found out myself I also would have nothing but negative images of Africa— ani (@ItsAniyahYo) January 2, 2018
Others focused on other aspects of the homework.
This is hilarious. BUT please do teach the children that living in Africa is NOT a death sentence. The Africa shown in TV/movies is not a genuine depiction of a general experience. Please teach them the truth.— Super Merita (@MeritaAppleHead) January 1, 2018
He's not wrong re: Drake. If you spend a year in this city, you'll accidentally run into him at least once.— Andrew Joe Potter (@AndrewJoePotter) December 31, 2017
