7 Things I Can Do That My Black Son Can’t | KMS Consulting | Scoop.it
In the days after the Michael Brown shooting, I wrote an essay titled “I Hope My Son Stays White,” detailing my fears about what might happen to my biracial three-year-old son if he grows up to have dark skin.

Anti-racism: an industry in decline

Like coal mining in the Eighties, the anti-racism industry is in decline. Governments can no longer afford to subsidise “diversity workshops” for which there's no demand.
