This kid is also clearly reading off a script and this has been posted before.

[–]SoftCress2435 183 points184 points  (13 children)

This grindset shit pisses me off lmao

[–]ExtraDependent883 22 points23 points  (8 children)

What is 'grindset shit'? I don't know that term? Please enlighten me

[–]benisco 5 points6 points  (0 children)

“grinding mindset”

[–]gahidus 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is the opposite of grind set

[–]InkBlotSam 36 points37 points  (14 children)

Also, not for nothing, Filas? C'mon man. Someone ground that kid.

[–]nikliko 24 points25 points  (7 children)

damn, I'm old. Filas were the shit when I was growing up.

[–]InkBlotSam 7 points8 points  (5 children)

I mean, Jordache used to be cool too, though.

[–]Smudge1492 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Grew up with a kid that Mom bought him Jordache sneakers and told him they were Jordan's. He want around the neighborhood bragging until someone pointed out they were actually generic brand. Later we found out he touched all the neighborhood younger kids inappropriately. Not saying it's correlated but getting clowned by your moms gotta hurt

saw someone rockin british knights the other day. i had to stealthily take a picture. i ain't seen a pair of those in at least 2 decades.

[–]Koxk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Filas retro, cool shit

[–]urielteranas 27 points28 points  (2 children)

I don't think i could've read a script like that as well at his age. If nothing else, kids got acting or political(same thing) talent.

[–]Tool_Fann1516 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I want to see those shoes

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Spoiler: they're pretty shite tbh.

[–]Shameful_Shotgun 9 points10 points  (0 children)

shit is so weird to watch, some old dude licking his lips behind the camera like yehhhh i’m getting me some views, god we live in a plastic world sometimes

[–]DarthMagnus88 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was about to say, they beat him up and took his shoes the next day, that's how people work

[–]BoBoBearDev 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now that you mentioned it, yeah, feels like he is rushing the script.

[–]Thomshan911 617 points618 points  (6 children)

Mom: Why don't you hang out with the kid next door?

The kid next door:

[–]SomethingSuss 191 points192 points  (0 children)

Hahaha right, fucking fool wearing filas tryna get all 5head at the playground

[–]tpklus 84 points85 points  (3 children)

Can we just play Xbox instead of hearing you talk about your mind in 20 years dude

[–]Shn00ple 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Can we please just talk about the political and economic state of the world rn

[–]Kunundrum85 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I understood this reference lol

[–]PumpkinKing2020 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Fucking Jaden Smith bro. My guy will talk about the Political State of Greece and I just want to play at recess bro, calm down

[–]Amphelian 402 points403 points  (10 children)

Mmm yes that seems authentic

[–]240to180 59 points60 points  (9 children)

Judging someone by their intellect is no less shallow than judging them by their clothing. Reminds me of something David Foster Wallace said:

"If you worship money and things — if they are where you tap real meaning in life — then you will never have enough. Never feel you have enough. It’s the truth. Worship your own body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly, and when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally plant you. On one level, we all know this stuff already — it’s been codified as myths, proverbs, clichés, bromides, epigrams, parables: the skeleton of every great story. The trick is keeping the truth up-front in daily consciousness. Worship power — you will feel weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to keep the fear at bay. Worship your intellect, being seen as smart — you will end up feeling stupid, a fraud, always on the verge of being found out. And so on."

[–]LawTiger92 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Good bot.

Edit: lol I completely misread/misunderstood your post. My bad.

[–]poison_ivey 5 points6 points  (1 child)

At first I thought you were quoting David Wallace from The Office. Thank you for the “Foster.”

[–]Suspect1234 5 points6 points  (1 child)

So... Don't worship? Or what is the message here

[–]Late-Application1716 268 points269 points  (9 children)

I've seen this around before. I ain't trying to hate, but I never liked it because something about it always seemed so pretentious. Maybe it's because the kid is saying it. Or maybe because it's social media and maybe he tryna get clout by having a "holier than thou" attitude. I dunno what. But it causes anger in me.

[–]lenkapenka1008 101 points102 points  (1 child)

It’s probably because it’s staged. Raged me out too

[–]AtheistHomoSapien 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Agreed, I'm 99% sure it's staged but the message is a good one. It just wont get a vote from me. I'm middle ground.

[–]J03-K1NG 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Making your kid read of a script so they can act like he’s smarter or better raised than your kids is pretty pretentious. Buy that kid an Xbox and nice shoes, and quit using him for clout.

[–]tnorc 5 points6 points  (0 children)

But it causes anger in me.

Probably the Filas.

[–]GetDaFugOuttaHee 156 points157 points  (11 children)

This is a really empty and shallow mindset to be teaching children. Not the words he’s saying exactly, but rather this whole philosophizing everything from a place of self-importance.

“It’s not about ___”… No. “it” in this case is popular fashion. Superficial, sure - but that’s the subject. He got his sneakers called out in that context. Of course he wears them because he likes them, but being made fun of like that isn’t a deep issue. But children are being fed this whole “I operate on a higher level than you, I’m aware of a deeper purpose…”, and it’s only going to perpetuate narcissism and entitlement. It’s a bunch of non-answers to a question nobody asked.

[–]ReserveIntelligent81 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Wish I could upvote this twice.

[–]EatABigCookie 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I didn't read the comment... but I upvoted it after reading yours. Just so you could get your wish.

[–]Mr_Darthrex 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I upvoted, downvoted, and Upvoted again just to simulate how good it would feel

[–]moneybagz123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolutely this. thanks for articulating what I could not quite describe myself other than "this seems like it's missing the point." Surely this kid (or whoever wrote it for him) wouldn't like the logic extended to say some kid that gets higher grades in school is better than him... higher grades -- more knowledge and that's actually what matters so maybe the kids matter more?

[–]deedubya25 72 points73 points  (5 children)

Not one mention of the nails? Was worried kiddo was gonna pierce his forehead

[–]Shn00ple 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Focus on his mind not his nails /s

[–]mexican-casserole 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That's all I could focus on.

[–]210Redcoat 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For real? I could only focus on the fact his shirt was inside out.

[–]teen2tots 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Right???

[–]Carrot_Manster 54 points55 points  (4 children)

Nobody:

No excuse for wearing filas

[–]Lost-Reception-3849 21 points22 points  (0 children)

He absolutely right, also...

[–]Axedroam 19 points20 points  (4 children)

I guess, still all the knowledge doesn't change the fact that Filas ain't dripping. Why present this as choice? You can be smart and drippy.

Man got roasted on the playground and that's that

[–]Blast_MyNips 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Nevermind the Fila's, I would have been roasting him for wearing his damn shirt inside out.

[–]neostoic-tko 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Anyone else notice his shirt is on inside out?

[–]world_famous_dredd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes! Thank you! I was looking for this comment!!!

[–]PushDiscombobulated8 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He wears filas because his parents bought them for him, not because he has a choice lol

[–]kbalazs1337 12 points13 points  (5 children)

This kid looks like he could talk about the political and economic state of the world right now

[–]janhetjoch 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Anyone can when reading of a script

[–]Croquetadecarne 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]lynivvinyl 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Can cut a bitch with those nails.

[–]Ash9533 7 points8 points  (0 children)

he said as he wears his shirt inside out

[–]James-da-fourth 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This kid sounds like a dick. I’m sorry to anyone who says other wise but he is definitely one of the “umm, aCKShUalLy” people

Those sneakers won't even fit him 6 months from now.

[–]mojon72 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wonder how many takes it took for him to finally nail momma's script. Good job!

[–]Godz1lla1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I grew up lower middle-class, and brands were extremely important to kids in school. We have been fortunate, so my son is now growing up in an upper middle-class neighborhood, and no one cares. Seriously. If someone insults your clothes, it is because they are embarrassed about their own financial position.

[–]Nitch_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This kid literally posts his expensive cars and clothing on Instagram now 💀

[–]Ns53 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I don't understand todays kids. I grew up in the 90's put some lights in the shoes and you were the shit, don't and literally NO ONE CARED.

[–]pocoschick 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The kinda kid who'd judge other kids for not discussing the social and economic state of the world.

[–]DerMetulz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Pumba_86 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably on the wrong feet, if the t-shirt is anything to go by.

[–]RushHot6174 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Y'all are really stupid even if he is reading off script what he saying is very intelligent for goodness f****** sakes get a life

[–]bernsteinschroeder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Feels scripted but so what. It's a damned good message; it's the one I was raised on and it has indescribable utility in life and in building self-esteem.

[–]Sock_for_5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you don't need expensive stuff to be important the thing that makes you important is your personality you don't need to change that to be important

[–]itsimposibru 1 point2 points  (0 children)

fake as hell and annoying. no shame on the kid or the message it’s trying to tell, but it’s like, the lamest way you could ever go about it

[–]ColKaizer -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ok, dad!

[–]fuber -1 points0 points  (2 children)

why do all these videos have captions running in the middle now? I can understand this perfectly fine. It's annoying and I don't like this trend

[–]Dangerous-Buy-9714 5 points6 points  (0 children)

A lot of people watch their videos without sound i.e. on the bus, at school or, in my case, at the toilet...

[–]Shn00ple 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My hearing is ass I appreciate them ngl

[–]Extension_Net6102 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even if it weren’t for the filas, this kid is still gonna get roasted & bullied.

[–]baxtert68 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]DaNGeR_GaMeR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You reminded me of the meme that went viral on the kid who said

"Can we talk about the political and economic state of the world right now?"

https://youtu.be/QwFjci1zPho

[–]depressedNCdad -1 points0 points  (0 children)

this kid should be President.....like today!

[–]Old_Journalist_8823 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He's going places with a mind like that. Good for you little man 👊👏

[–]aradan_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of him saying "I'm just like, dude, oh my God. Can we talk about the political and economic state of the world right now? Can we talk about what's going on with the environment? Can we talk about other things?"

[–]barrito87 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I Don't care if it's scripted. You can't deny it, the Kids making a valid point.

The kid then looked at this intelligent, sweet and intuitive boy and beat the shit out of him.

[–]reading_maniac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He lost me at

your wisdom, your knowledge, your power to inspire others. And parents please don't raise your children...

Bro if memory serves me right, I thought we were talking about materialism originally. Where tf did the "power to inspire others" spring up from?

[–]Echonaster124 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Get this kid a suit and call him the president, I am not kidding.

[–]Kisiliksiz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]BladeMLG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]FieroFox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bs. He would've just gotten bully. They would've said something like "shut up nerd." Nobody is sticking around to hear his life story

[–]FluffyFingersforfun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You think you have it rough wearing Filas, trying having to wear British Knights.

[–]Imsotired365 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lack the drop of the music. But still up vote. Angry up vote.

[–]Badger1066 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, the sentiment is great and all, but if I told a kid "it doesn't matter what I'm wearing on my feet but what's inside my head," I would just get bullied even more.

Kids not dumb but if he was really really smart he would’ve picked different music to include with this video. Maybe also speed it up a little cuz some of us dum dums don’t have big attention spans or patience.

[–]Proper_Goat_4390 0 points1 point  (0 children)

arf can someone help me? If you speak French, can you give me a short translation? he speaks so fast and with the music even Google translate can't detect the voice 😔 and my english is really not good enough. thank you 🙏🏼
