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 Sites'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.
