The latest in the Ordinary Terrible Things series, a white child sees TV coverage of a police shooting—and has some questions.

"Anastasia Higginbotham knows something that far too many of us have forgotten: Children are smart. Children are observant. Children understand fairness and justice. and they have an immense capacity for engaging with the "difficult" topics that we grown-ups too often try to avoid. I am in love with Not My Idea, and with Higginbotham's direct, radical, compassionate approach to talking about whiteness, racism, and the need to tell painful but important truths. As a white parent working to raise conscious, loving, anti-racist humans, I cannot wait to share it with my kids."

—Kate Schatz, NYT-bestselling author of Rad American Women A-ZRad Women Worldwide, and Rad Girls Can
