HOUSTON – At only 18-years-old, Houstonian Cameron Welch has gone viral with a single upload to Tik Tok.
The social media app is normally known to show funny dance challenges or silly voice overs, but Cameron used his platform for a different reason this time; to share the harsh reality of what it’s like growing up as a young, black male.
Cameron joined in on the conversation to talk about his post, (that currently has almost 12 million views) where he lists a few unwritten rules his mom makes him follow as a young black man.
He says his main goal in posting these things is “to understand that no one should live like this, and that we need to bring change.”
Here is the list of rules Cameron outlines in his post:
– Don’t put your hands in your pockets
– Don’t put your hoodie on
