So I'm wondering if the whole being outraged about the treatment of black people was passing fad or if people do still believe that black lives matter. I mean I really can't ignore it when I live with the colour of my skin everyday, even worse I'm the mother of a black boy who unfortunately has already experienced racism and also racial profiling from the same people who really should be protecting him at this age...teachers. Now this happened a couple years ago and he's since moved schools and his new school have like a zero tolerance for racism but he's still had to go through it and unfortunately it's only a taster of things to come for him.
I actually went to a couple protests and took the kids as I wanted them to experience it and learn and I was happy to see so many people there outside of black folk and very impressed that most had really interesting stuff on their banners like clearly they'd been reading and learning. Here's my problem, obviously not all white people are racist but I feel the protests have only made the non racist white folk more educated on our struggle and more likely to call out inequality and help if they can which is obviously a good thing. But, the people who are the problem, will still be racist, dangerous and ignorant and couldn't give 2 shits about protests, news etc this will not change them or their thought process and if those kinda people continue to be in positions of authority what does that mean for people like me? Not gonna lie,
racist people scare me
Cuz they're soooo full of hate you just don't know what they're gonna try do to you.
So going back to the school and RD being racially profiled, I actually touched on it briefly in a past post but I also did a video on it, so you can see exactly what he had to deal with and maybe why teachers should maybe go through extra screening or something before being allowed to teach black kids.
