Kids say the darndest things. But sometimes they say shocking things.

On Thursday, 9-year-old Brandon did the latter when he was asked why he wanted President Barack Obama to win a second term outside a campaign rally featuring First Lady Michelle Obama in Daytona, Fla.

“Because if Mitt Romney win, we’ll be going back to the crop fields,” Brandon said, referring to the days of slavery. “We’ll be picking crops.”

“We need Obama to win, because Obama was our president for how many years? Three years. And we need him to win because he’s a good president,” the boy added.
