#CarefreeBlackKids2k16 is the bright light we needed after this troubling week

The past few days have been nothing short of draining. Going to bed Tuesday night hearing that another unarmed black man was killed, only to attempt to sleep Wednesday night after watching the Falcon Heights shooting video was nothing short of tragic. In times like these, it is crucial to remember that as a black person in America, our self-care is crucial. On Thursday afternoon, #CarefreeBlackKids2k16 started trending on Twitter. It was started by Heben Nigatu, the co-host of one of our favorite podcasts, Another Round and a co-writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The hashtag resurrected some of our favorite viral videos of all time, as well as some new ones we haven't seen before. If you need a pick-me up or something to brighten your day, take a look at our amazing kids.

When this little girl killed it!

Mr. Postman, the carefree black kid version.

Let's not forget the most classic vine of all-time.

When your whole family lit.

Carefree enough to join your mama in dance.

Best "Drunk in Love" cover, ever....

...and the best jig to a Jay-Z song, ever.

You just really can't out do black kids.

"The whole world makes me happy."

Just adorable.

We literally make fun out of any moment.

And we serve as the best squad.

Teach them at a young age...

...and get them in "Formation."

Lifting spirits, one action at a time.

Last but not least, let's not forget this epic moment in Carefree Black Kid history.
