So what happens when you remove the child from such a nurturing environment to one where the administration believes the melanin in your skin is an indicator of intellectual inferiority? Not only that, how does one navigate through a labyrinth composed of racial slurs and threats hurled at you by your alleged “peers”?
The rise of “reverse-isms” are indicative of the current racial/political climate in the United States in that whenever a person of color or a member of an oppressed group demands resources which will help fulfill their needs as human beings, the automatic assumption is it has to be a zero-sum gain
Intraracial violence and police brutality in the Black community cannot viewed as isolated issues because they share a common denominator: the loss of Black life.
As Black people, we must stand and act with the same level of indignation whenever a young sister or brother’s life is lost to senseless violence.
