Need to Know

I was walking with Coco in the stroller, on out way to pick up Madge. We walked by a group of African-American schoolgirls (maybe age 12?). As I passed them, I heard them say, “White people all want their kids to be like that.”
This was after I had passed several other parents (white) and nannies (not so white) picking up various kids (mostly white).
What had these girls seen? Was it me and Coco? He wasn’t doing anything special. Is it because he wasn’t walking?
It’s still killing me.
Especially because, whatever the “like that” is, I’m just sure these girls are right.
