Race And Double Standards

Race And Double Standards | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


It was a regular Saturday, I suppose. Hubby was getting ready to cut the grass. Baby girl was eating her waffles and enjoying an episode of “Super WHY.” And I was, as always, on my laptop. Then this happened:

Crash! Scraaatch! Bang! Crash!

I called for my Hubby and got to the front door just in time to see the young man who’d just taken out at least three cars on our normally quiet block, jump out of the car and start running nervously back and forth.

I Shall Not Be Conformed -Starlette McNeill

I Shall Not Be Conformed -Starlette McNeill | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"It’s not about race; that’s the scapegoat. This is about how we treat one another and there’s no one to blame but us.

 

We draw the lines and then cross them.

 

We provide the rations of privilege and train our children for combat.

 

We strategize and plan and attack each other. Crying, “peace, peace” when that’s not what we really want.

 

We want war because we want sides– our side of the story to be prominent, our piece of the pie to be largest."

Rule No. 1: Notice Difference

Rule No. 1: Notice Difference | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
My son has taken to calling himself Black as he has learned that Black is a culture/ethnic heritage and not necessarily a skin color. At school someone overheard him say, "Cause I'm Black!
Community Village's insight:


This blog is one of the best I've run accross in speaking insightful truth about race relations. Even if you are not a parent or a transracial parent, it's still a good blog - quality insightful writing from a mom who is a great asset to our community of truth tellers and oppression fighters.


In this article she explains that it's not racist to notice physical difference. However, when someone mentions race when it's not relevant to the story or when they try to spin the story to demonize a certain group, that is racist.
