This is a reflection of the current state of our youth… In an age Where trolling for attention is the motivating factor to get out of bed every day and we reward it with retweets and hash tags …we did this.

Middle School Teacher Suspended For Showing Video About White Actors Wearing Blackface ↘

djsneverendingstory:

Teacher suspended for telling the truth about American history and even called a racist for doing so. I’m glad the parents oppose the suspension. Why do people get punished for telling the truth?

"The unidentified assistant principal concluded that Barron’s lesson about how entertainers used to be racist was itself racist"

^^^ This is literally one of the oldest tricks in the book for keeping one’s people as ignorant as possible. Why are people so good at repeating history?

The Case for Reparations - The Atlantic ↘

The social and political relationship between blackness and whiteness in this country has been BOTH a moral disaster and an economic necessity for the nation. Thus, #missme with apologies and tears, and struggle with me for substantive change.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

— Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

"I tend to be cynical about a lot of things, but Maya Angelou is somebody that no matter how much I pick her apart, she still has integrity. She was a victim of incest and rape, and she worked as a stripper. And now she’s a literary icon and Nobel Laureate. It goes to show that life is cumulative, and you can’t devalue any type of experience."

Humble words for Dr. Maya Angelou

It is a solemn occasion to be a scholar of African American literature and culture. Thank you, Dr. Maya Angelou, for teaching us to see the beauty of our blackness—not to hate and flay ourselves, but to love unconditionally. Today, I cry tears of joy to have known your work (yes, today, it is not text, but work).
