Teach a class about racism… and this is what happens.
Sooo white people calling out white people for white tears. This is important, watch it all and also pay attention to how the white woman in the red sweater with the short brown hair doesn’t detach herself from white people and she basically says, “fuck our feelings because PoC go through this all the time”
DID YOU SEE THE PART WHERE ONE OF THE PARENTS SAID IT WASN’T OKAY TO LABEL PEOPLE AS WHITE PEOPLE
it takes one white voice to shut up countless people of color… just think about that
Woah, check it, this is from my high school. I took this class, and while it was far from perfect, it was a crazy powerful/formative experience for me. The fact that it got shut down after ten plus years, due to the complaints of one, individual white student, proves just how badly classes like this are needed in school curriculum.
That baby on Hemlock Grove is not the cute.
“She never actually told me why she was sick, but people talk. Some of the older kids were like: ‘Yo, your mom has AIDS.’”
I have been self-advocating for quite some time for my son Kai to be placed properly in school. We currently live in Howard County and the public schools are inclusion based. This means Kai is in a classroom with children who are typical learners. Kai is not a typical learner; he has been diagnos…
Normally I don’t do things like this but this is my friend and she needs help. Kai is 11 years old and suffers from Autism and other developmental issues. Howard County Schools is refusing to admit that they cannot handle him in the classroom because this would mean they would be responsible financially for him to go to a private school where he would better suited. Kai is a very sweet boy and I believe that if he had someone advocating for him, he’d receive much better treatment. He needs to receive help that deals with his behavior and finds out what triggers it instead of pulling him out of class and placing him into seclusion. My friend has finally found a project who will advocate for Kai but at $500 for only 10 hours. As a single mom, that price tag is great. She’s only asking for $500 but I’m trying to help her raise more. Because he needs more. Please donate if you can and share on your page if you can’t. Also if you know of any support groups or programs that help children (and their parents) with Autism and/or developmental issues, please let me know. Thanks so much!!
Reblogging myself cause this is important! Signal boost!
a kid from my school sent me a pic an elaborate painting of atticus finch shirtless smoking a blunt while a colt 45 is being poured on him along with a text that read “hot dad 2: dad harder” and this is the closest thing to a sext I have ever received
You neglected to mention the Tupac and Biggie cherubs how dare you.
look there’s a lot going on here it makes perfect sense that they’d forget some details
So does anyone remember when Sonic used to make bubblegum slushes? Someone has to remember this!
For one day, I wear my hair wrapped like this to my job at a daycare, after getting permission (yes, I had to get permission) from my supervisor.
White people had the following comments:
"Um… I don’t wanna be racist but what is that on your head?"
"I love the, uh, exotic headdress!"
"So, are you from Africa? I thought you were just black."
"Can you wrap my head like that if I go get a scarf?"
"Is that a religious thing? What holiday is it for you?"
"That makes you look so eccentric. Like, really eccentric."
"So is that just a Black thing?"
"Can I touch it? How did you even do that?"
"You’ve gotta be Nigerian or something, right?"
And the best, from a white parent of a child I’m the teacher of:
"…Your hair must be super nappy today if you have to cover it up, haha. Right?"
Omg at all of this!
