Eight Things White Parents Should Teach About Black People

Eight Things White Parents Should Teach About Black People


Yesterday, I talked about how John Derbyshire’s “advice” to White parents on what to say to their kids about black people was the right idea with the wrong messenger. You can see my column here.

And while Derbyshire’s racist suggestions got him fired from the National Review it doesn’t mean that most White parents out there are doing a particularly good job to talking to thier kids about race.

So, I know you’ve all been waiting patiently to see … drum roll please:

The Talk for White Parents to their White Kids about Black People

In this day and age of Black presidents, a Black First Lady that still makes a White man’s head explode and George Zimmerman killing a defenseless Trayvon Martin in cold blood, you’ll need it.  It will come in handy White people, so read carefully. Don’t just open for emergencies, depending on what’s an emergency to you.  But, this should work for:

1) The first time your kid asks why there’s a Black history month

2) The first time they come to you asking about the word “nigger;” and

3) Just about any other time you’re stumped by a Black/White race issue and don’t know what to say.


Dear White son or daughter [INSERT NAME HERE], here’s what you need to know:

1) Black People and White people are different but that doesn’t mean one is better than the other. Black people look different, often eat different foods, communicate and socialize in ways that may seem strange or odd for you. But just because something is different doesn’t mean it’s bad, or that the way you do things is better. Always remember that.

2) If you don’t know something about Black people ask a lot of them. Your Black friends don’t speak for all Black people. It’s perfectly okay to not know something, because honestly unless you ask every Black person in America you really don’t know. Do you?

3) White People as a group have done terrible things to Blacks in this country – and just because they are black (not to mention Asians, Latinos and American Indians). This is a fact. You may not be personally responsible but you benefit from this fact and therefore have some responsibility. No: you never enslaved anybody, neither did your mother or I, but lots of White people did. Once slavery was over, White people spent about 100 years mistreating Blacks because they couldn’t figure out how to send them all home after that whole nation-building thing. This means that Black people used to get killed just for trying to vote, weren’t allowed to live where they wanted to, and even today some White people refuse to hire Blacks just because they are black. And while those types of things are illegal, people still do it. You benefit from this. So before you ever judge a Black person remember that other White people worked for centuries to make sure you’d be okay and Black people would stay poor.

4) Saying “nigger” is the same thing as saying “bitch.” Even though you may hear it in music, or with your friends at school you know perfectly well that you shouldn’t use that word regardless of who is in earshot. And really, why is it so important to use it anyway?

5) Always remember there is a difference between a Black neighborhood, a bad neighborhood and a poor neighborhood. Just because an area has lots of Black people doesn’t mean they’re poor or that there’s lots of crime. There are plenty of places where black people live that are nicer than our neighborhood. You should avoid any group of people that seem dangerous because of their behavior or activities, whether that’s in a trailer park or an inner city ghetto. You can get robbed by anybody.

6) No matter who your sister/brother has dated, or what your friends have told you, or how many episodes of Chappelle Show you’ve watched you do not KNOW Black people. Who or what you listen to, read, or sleep with does not make you Black. Acting like you know everything about Black people because you have some Black friends or enjoy rap music is ignorant.

7) Black people are not pets, so don’t touch them without permission, or change your voice when you’re around them, or worse: automatically try to set them up with any Black person you know. This never works out. If you’re curious about their hair just ask, you’d be amazed at some of the stuff Black folks hear all day.

8) And finally: the best way to get along with Black people is to not be oblivious. Nothing annoys Black people more than White people who pretend racism doesn’t exist and then proclaim ignorance in the face of overwhelming evidence. Just because you don’t see it, or don’t want to see it, doesn’t mean Black people are paranoid or making things up. If you think about lesson 3 you should be good on this.

I know this talk has made you uncomfortable, but your mother/father and I believe that it’s better for you to hear this at home than learning about it on the streets or from your friends. Now go out to the park and make some Black friends! But just promise me you won’t cut through those trailer parks. I heard those people are all single moms and sell crystal meth.

  1. i feel you racist motherufuckers need to delete this FUKCING information. i understand the point yall are trying to make BUTTTTTT … some of the points you are making is irrelevant .

  2. ….blacks and whites are all the same in the eyes of God…the Creator….our physical differences of the skin colour should not separate us…..if you tickle me, I will laugh and so you will….if you offend me, I will get annoyed and so you will…

  3. I don’t know were you get your racist information at. But there is a lot of black people in this country a lot richer than I am. I was applying for a job one time, this employer told me that I meet all of the qualifications for the job, but the government tells him that he has to hire so many black people before he can hire me.. So don’t tell me you have been mistreated.

    I have lived around black people all of my life, I eat the same foods they eat. I have eat in black people’s homes before. I can tell you one thing, most of them are just like you, they think the white man’s owes them something. I can’t help what happened to your ancestors over 100 years ago. We are all treated equal. I have been mistreated by blacks and white people, you are just going to have to live with it or move back were your ancestors come from.

    • LMAO… “I was applying for a job one ONE TIME – ONE TIME – ONE TIME – ONE TIME – ONE TIME – ONE TIME, this employer told me that I meet all of the qualifications for the job, but the government tells him that he has to hire so many black people before he can hire me.”

      LMFAO…. He said ONE TIME….!!! Try having that happen 90% of the time. Save your sobb stories. No one blames you personally but things are not equal by any stretch of the imagination. Just because the oppression is covert, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

  4. it makes me sick to see such educated african americans who think like this all u do is make more hate in hopes that it will better your race above others all peaple are created equil jews and so many other ppl of the world have all had the same treatment your skin coler does not entitle you to anythi

  5. Negroes are never going to change. They are nothing but chronic whining complainers who use racism as an excuse for all that ails them. Racism is his magic elixer and his constant companion. When the Negris couldn’t get her McNugets because McDonald’s ran out it was racism to the rescue. When a White runner beat a Black runner in the summer Olympics it was racism to the rescue once again. Not one single Negro in field of science has been a Nobel laureate. Why? Racism! 85% of children born to Blacks are born illegitimately then abandoned by their Black fathers. Wasn’t the million man march supposed to end this degenerate behavior? How could it when the real Negro cause is racism? There are now more Black men in prison then there were slaves in 1850 but that has nothing to do with Black behavior it’s all because of racism. When Whites send more cops in crime ridden Black neighborhoods they are racially profiling them. When they stop sending them they do so because they don’t care about Blacks. We are damned if we do damned if we don’t because Negroes are implacable. Negroes as a collective people are complete and total failures because they refuse to pull their heads out of their stinky assholes and learn to behave and act like decent human beings. Doing so makes them White.

    • LMAO… If you are as ignorant to the facts of society and the orchestration of the degradation, oppression and annihilation of the black race… then you need to educate yourself on the facts.

      “We’re damned if we do damned if we don’t…” STFU. Was it not racism when blacks were hung, shot and beat to death for entertainment purposes? Was it not racism when blacks were given syphilis on purpose by you white people? Was it not racism when white people formed Unions to keep the clearly highly skilled black people from getting work when they were freed? IS it not racism when time after time a black like is taken by Your Police officers and nothing happens to the police officer? I guess if we take our heads out of our collective asses we could see through your rose colored glasses huh? F. You. A. Hole !!!

    • what u said could have been true, however while I was in the military, I got to travel overseas more often. guess who is the most hated people in the world, and that complaines about getting back to the u.s.. please don’t mention the sports arena…I believe that blacks are leading in that division. but if I try to prove to u the misbehavior that has happened to blacks, u would never understand. the message that was wrote was for those who think on your level. u know so much, because u keep record of what is done wrong. thanks for sharing. ps. keep me in prayer….u do pray don’t u

  6. And…..it looks like “Mottin Loofa King’s dream speech has come true. He wanted to live in a new America when a Black man would be judged not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character. Do I not tell the truth when I say Negroes are the most hateful, rudest, nastiest, mannerless and most violent people to be found anywhere? What the hell kind of human beings would invent a game called knockout and bash someone’s face open for absolutely no reason whatsoever? Human beings would not do this but Savages would. How many of you ever had to ride public transportation with Negroes on board? If you never had to please come to New Jersey and jump on the bus with Blacks and I guarantee you will do EXACTLY as MLK said and judge them by the quality of their character

    • Fuck all niggers no I am not racist! Being racist would mean a hate all but whites. Niggers are bad for Americas Heath. They are filth with the highest aids carry race. They all stink like they are dead and nothing can fix the smell of those kinky tops.

      • You White people cant stay in the sun long whites fuck there own childern and there moms yall eat humans and kiss dogs in the mouth and when you get wet u smell like puppys

  7. Taylor fuck you and your nigger ways whites will always be better just get over it we fucked up by letting you choose where to sit when we said front we meant outside of the bus as we ran your nigger asses over your filth trash And good for nothing whites do not owe you shit except a piece of rope and a strong tree

    • White Power, shut up, one of these days your racist ass will be kicked. I mean seriously, fuck you, you think that just because your on the internet means your anonymous, well guess what bud, your not. If someone you know comes across this, they’ll find out how much of a real cowardly asshole you are. When I saw your comment, I just wanted to find you and punch you in the mouth so hard, your teeth will be coming out of your dick. Black people are awesome, Asians are awesome and Latinos (I myself being peruvian) and whites are all equally awesome people, ya know Why? Because were all humans. It’s racists like you, who bar the world from coming together, it is evil people like you who start wars, and cause genocide. Those people who do these things, will all suffer the same fate, you will die a lonely little shit who has been hated, rejected and beaten throughout all societies. So, to come to my final point, racists go fuck your fat selves and go shoot your miserable little heads with a bullet. The only people discriminate against are racists. They are not human, they’re problems.

      • Cheers to Thomas!!!! You are the “bad” apple that is causing even more white guilt into society. White power, the damage is done, you don’t have to continue its nasty cycle. I step out and I see jews, blacks, asians, native americans, even irish and I don’t care. People shouldn’t have the need to be a color, sex, or sexuality for me to like them or understand them. WE ARE HUMANS and that is IT. We all have religion, traditions, and love for others. That should be our focus. These 8 rules are dumb only in the sense that you just need to teach your kids about reality. Teach them humanity and they will be fine. My parents didn’t even teach me a thing about acceptance because it was COMMON SENSE. You are not god and you don’t get the option of choice.

  8. First off, if you have to make a rule book about what to say and how to act around black people, you really are being too careful with this. Black people are just people. It matters how a child of ethnic descent was raised that makes them the person they are. You can’t just generalize a whole race either. Keep that in mind before you post ignorant comments, anybody.

    • The “rule book’ is needed because Blacks want to be separate, don’t want to conform to society’s norms. Of course they want all the benefits of conforming.

      • Behind every rich white person there are strong black people because we worked yall fields and we work yall bullshit ass jobs that yall give us then you want us to say thanks ya sir

  9. Blacks sure are different. Not as good too. The violence, rejection of education, rudeness, rejection of marriage, out of control promiscuity, rampant teen age pregnancy, choosing crime over jobs and of course the low IQs. Not as good as whites.

  10. I always wondered why ALL blacks didn’t come together as one and show the white man that they are not less than them but equal to them. Pull together; stop the black on black crime, reduce going to prison, stop the hate, educate yourselves, show them you can succeed from self education. You don’t need the white mans help any more you have the power…..SHOW THEM!!!! It seems the strength of blacks back in the 60’s is gone. Blacks that make those millions should be coming together and help pull together.

  11. 9) Blacks are massively disproportionately violent criminals. Sure, those crimes may be against other blacks, but they’re still way too violent if only to each other.

    10) Blacks have the largest share of income in the informal economy due to their disproportionate control of the narcotics trade in the US.

    11) Blacks don’t value education. They test lower, get lower grades and waste a tremendous amount of society’s resources on remedial education efforts.

    12) Blacks have way too much contact with balls. They bounce them, throw them, catch them, perform songs at them and cover them with their hands as a symbol of powerless dominance. Thus, point 13…..

    13) Blacks have been betrayed by their inordinate dependence on professional sports as a source of income for their community. Beyond the immediate wages they capture via their efforts, blacks receive very little of the future royalties and value of team ownership. This is due to point 14…

    14) Blacks are incompetent at money management. There is not one single example in the entire world of blacks making, keeping and sustaining substantial wealth in an industry that doesn’t have something to do with sports or entertainment. Outside of those immediate, recent successes, blacks in America are largely like their brothers in Africa – broke, stupid and hopelessly foolish. A simple equation is Detroit = Zimbabwe.

    • And black people teach there kids the same in reverse take whatever u can from whites and we laugh at yall when we see how scared yall are of black people shakey bitch

  12. Eleven things White Parents should teach their Children:

    1) When around Blacks, never relax. According to the FBI statistics Blacks are 35% more likely to viciously attack a White than the other way around. The knockout Game ( aka Polar Bear Hunting) is a prime example of this.

    2) White Females should never relax around a Black. Again, FBI statistics Black Men are 26% more likely to rape a White Girl than any other Race, and 15% more likely to rape a White Woman than any other race.

    3) Never date, sleep with, or Marry a Black. According to statistics taken from the National Center of Disease Control,over 56% of the Black population has some form of STD ranging from HPV to full blown AIDS. Over 75% of Blacks come from single Parent households, Domestic abuse, etc are much higher in interracial relationships.

    4) Blacks demand everything to be given to them, and don’t want to earn anything, that is why standards are lowered for them. Blacks can graduate from High School with lower test scores than any other Race, get admittance into a College with lower SAT scores, GPA, etc. When it comes to competing for jobs, Blacks get precedence over Whites even though Blacks don’t meet the qualifications or standards.

    5) Blacks have violent tendencies and lack the ability to speak properly because they have lower I.Qs. According to Rushton, the Bell Curve, and many other studies Blacks in the U.S have the average I.Q of 85, and in Black dominated Countries such as Haiti and Africa their I.Qs range from 65-75. Lower I.Qs equal more aggression, and lack of abstract thinking, the ability to foresee the ramifications of their actions. Blacks make up approximately 15% of the U.S population, and yet they make up about 29% of the prison population.

    6) Blacks always need to be the center of attention. Can’t go anywhere without them acting out, or speaking loudly.

    7) Blacks are poor because they keep themselves there. Again, lacking the ability to see ten minutes down the road they continuously make bad decisions that keep them poor. Example of this is the large number of Single Black Mothers that can’t even afford to feed themselves and yet they keep popping out Children like a Pez Dispenser.

    8) There is no such thing as a ” African American”. Unless they just came here from Africa, they are to be considered Black.

    9) Never believe how Blacks are depicted on T.V or other forms of Entertainment. Blacks are depicted as smarter, more masculine, and sexier than Whites. It is all false. Those T.V Blacks would kill you over a nickle, and when it comes down to being a good Parent to your Children, a good Spouse, and able to provide for you a White or even an Asian would be a better candidate. Statistics don’t lie, are not biased, and not Racist.

    10) Blacks find Racism under every rock. Black does not get their way they pull out the Platinum Race Card. They get denied a job, it’s Racism. They get denied a Promotion, it’s Racism. They get arrested for breaking the law, it’s Racism. Everything to a Black is Racist.

    11) Most important thing that White Parents should teach their Children, be proud of their Race, their Races accomplishments, and not have White guilt. White Privilege is a lie, and all because we were born White does not mean the Heavens opened up for us and dropped millions of dollars in our laps. Work hard for what you want, and not feel guilty for your successes.

  13. If you’re white, you are best off avoiding blacks all together. Like a dog with a brain tumor, one of them will eventually snap and do something vicious and senseless that you’ll never be able to understand. This is especially true for white girls.

    If you’re a white girl and chose to do something ‘innocent’ with black boys, sooner or later you will be raped and/or pimped out to other blacks. This is the norm for their culture, and should be avoided. Also, remember the saying used almost universally by successful white men – ‘once you go black, we don’t want you back.’ If you wind up with a black baby, your life will be miserable and no white person except the trash will want you.

    If you chose to work or play around blacks, be prepared for violence and thievery. These are also normal parts of black culture that you’ll never understand. If you have anything valuable and a black befriends you, be prepared to have it stolen. If you get into an argument, no matter what your side is, you will be assaulted as soon as the black believes it’s losing. This is also true if you confront them about stealing your stuff.

    Then there is the random violence problem.

  14. I already taught my children the truth. Black people are dangerous and avoid them at all costs. And do not be swayed by the lies they see on TV, social media, and especially in advertising. Because, as I explained, that while those people promote the lie, most do not live the lie. They live nice lives in very segregated communities.

  16. Thanks for another informative site. Where else may I am getting that type of info written in such an ideal way? I have a venture that I’m simply now operating on, and I’ve been at the look out for such information.

  17. Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

  18. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Bless you!

  19. This just fucking gets me going man i hate the fucking racial shit. There’s no fucking difference between whites and blacks. Why should we have to treat blacks any different from ourselves. we’re all one fucking family And by the way about the racism thing. Blacks are WAY more racist then whites. if you haven’t noticed they can turn any word or situation into a hate crime .and they do it intentionally because they feel like whites “OWE’ them something this should be called, “Things black parents should teach about black people”.

  20. Wow these comments are sick. What you White Supremacists’ fail to understand is that not all black people fit into a statistic or stereotype.You all constantly misquote criminal statistics, lie, exaggerate to the utmost degree, and try to divert attention away from all the evils that the white society also commits on a daily basis. Let’s talk about how white society is more prone to perverted acts with children including molestation, rape, child pornography and etc. How it has been proven that the white society on a average basis discriminates against blacks concerning jobs, real estate, bank related activities and etc. And mind you these are not the “so-called” niggers that you racists LOVE to speak of these are high wage making blacks with masters, PhD’s, that graduated at the tops of their classes. The White society is an sickness…No one asked for your “civilization”. No one asked for your technology. No one asked for your Government. I am a 22 year old,young gay black male and I have never been to jail, I have never played knockout or anything similar, I don’t call women bitches, I don’t sag my pants, and I have never worked a minimum wage job in my life or any job that white people deem stereotypical for a black to have. I’ve experienced homelessness for over 3 years of my life but If you heard me speak you’d say I sound white or I talk proper for a black guy. I play video games, I love video games, and I love to cook. I listen to Zedd, Paramore, Oh Land, The Gee Girls, Swedish House Mafia, and etc. One day I want to create a AAA video game that involves more than the stereotypical White Saviour complex as a story-line. With characters that portray realism and break the mold on what these characters are perceived to be via societies stereotypes. But even after all of that I’m still a faggot nigger to most of you white people. When I walk by your women clutch their purses to themselves and hurriedly grab their childrens’ hands. But that isn’t racism? Racism is not something that you’re born with it’s something that you learn through your parents, through different social ties, through family, friends, and our society. We are all equal but throughout history The Caucasoid race has made it EXTREMELY evident that we’re not. Because if we were all so-called “equal” then why over CENTURIES has the White Race consistently tried to so called “Improve” other races they deemed lesser than themselves. Yes blacks do need to step up and take charge of their own destinies and acknowledge that there is racism and a myriad of other issues.Through the White societies attempted systematic degradation of all minorities besides their own we are still suffering from it to this day. Instead of racists’ just making racist comments why don’t you try to change the status quo in this nation.

  21. Christian ethics dishes out plenty of guilt you cannot do this that even if your a normal human animal. Houses in the if you will white community were being horribly suppressed behind closed doors. Besides what do you want to be when you grow up?
    I mean other than yourself ? This uh so called reasoning isn’t insanity ? Well depending on you if you look outside of how your number is who you are your worthiness depends on – – insanity. Long so called repressed insanity that without anyone else at fault if
    parental anger permitted – Angry parents who gave certain roles to their kids would have
    had to direct their anger at themselves Our society allows us to see ourselves as worthy by looking at others as children we used to be repressed and not as worthy.
    What do we do with that? We become better than you.
    Our only escape is to do this if not aware of what we are doing to our actual selves
    Since a long time ago time after time in history our actual self isn’t who we actually are
    We are our jobs. We are our numbers. We are whatever this mechanical monster society we built with our hands we repeat Like a cog in a wheel you may hold the wheel in place however your not moving on

  22. Why does no one hold “responsibility” to Asians, even though they were forced to blast tunnels through the Sierras during the building of the First Transcontinental Railroad? Every racial group has been “mistreated,” at some point in time, yet “white guilt” seems to be only applicable to black people.

  23. My son was attacked near his school my 6 black boys, calling him “white boy” he got 7 stitches to his jaw where he was kicked. How to I try to explain to him THEY are not racist?? Bottom line..I can’t.

    • I’ve never allowed to let my children tray people unjustly based on color; be racist. .. but just like you I had an incident where a 17 year old black kid propositions my 14 year old daughter at the bus stop .. she ignored him went on her way. ..and before you know it she is being called obscenities threatened by 12 black girls she can’t even walk hinges from the bus stop I have to leave work ti pick her up. In this. .. the same neighborhood several black kid aroundc my other daughter’s age (8) pushed her into an empty apartment and threatened to cut off her “white girl hair” if she told anyone. she doesn’t understand why I can’t let her play outside because I never taught her to not be friends with people due race. …. thanks to the niggers in this neighborhood both my daughters now hate ALL black people.

  24. Your article is so irrelevant and stupid, it is beyond my belief. How can you even write this crap when you are forcefully trying to separate races by adding more fuel to the fire. The first and only thing you should say to your kids are treat others like you want to be treated yourself. Why are you indirectly trying to turn this into a racial issue, by pointing out the behaviors of other people. We all act and live our lives differently, but at the end of the day we all end up six feet under when the time comes, so no-one is, and shouldnt be considered above anyone, no matter what your upbringings are. But, me pointing this out wont get anywhere because there always be ignorant and narrow-minded people in this world.

  25. I have been surfing online greater than three hours lately, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net will likely be much more useful than ever before.

  26. Thank you for any other informative site. Where else may just I am getting that type of info written in such a perfect manner? I have a mission that I’m simply now working on, and I have been on the glance out for such information.

  27. aside from the fact that I agree with several post stating that black people are the rudest meanness racist groups around aside from the fact that I agree they do have a certain smell to them aside from the fact that I agree that black people think that we all owe them something I’m Puerto Rican and I obviously owe them something to aside from the fact that black mothers let their children run wild and do not care for them at all I see children four and five years old at 10 o’clock at night walking around in the dark listening to rap music talking about this hoe and that hoe b**** this and f*** that the point of the matter is European Spaniards Jews and many other nationality came to this country and within a generation flourished… these people have been here for centuries and they are still falling down the welfare system they still say that the world owes them something what’s wrong with them why can’t they flourish the way that other nationalities did with the other people did Spanish people had it just as hard and the Jews had it just as hard if not harder but they still flourish the only people holding the black man down is the black man..because they feel like if you act with some sort of intelligence that you must be a traitor to your race and acting white that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard hey so if you act like you have some sense you’re a traitor to the black nation you have to act like an idiot in order to be called Black its just stupid I never hated black people until I moved in the neighborhood that was predominantly black they treat my kids like crap because my children have better hair than they do I had an 8 year old black kid try to hump my 8 year old daughter I’ve had my car vandalized and they leave garbage everywhere and when I say garbage I mean used drug baggies used condoms and this is the neighborhood where I had to pay $100 to get a criminal background check done you’re going to tell me that they do criminal background check on all these n***** better living in there just joined the neighborhood and its not a cheater neighborhood but I come to find out that most of these apartments accept section 8…which I don’t qualify for even though I’m a single mom with 3 kids working my b*** off everyday to pay taxes so that certain people can stay in the welfare system they pay about twenty eight dollars a month in rent while I have to pay a thousand it just doesn’t seem fair our government sucks having a black president that’s just as racist as every other black person walking down the street was the dumbest thing that this country could have ever done I maintain the fact that Mayer Giuliani should have been president….

  28. This is one of the single most racist things I have ever read. I didn’t raise my children to be racist, but articles like this go a long way towards undoing all my hard work. Wow. The artisans and audacity behind this is staggering. Obviously written by someone who has capitalized on racial division and very typical of the perpetual victim mentality. I nor my children have any responsibility for crimes against black people and will not be made to feel otherwise. Ever. We live by the golden rule, apply it to everyone and that’s the end of it. I do not owe any group anything for centuries or decades old trespasses that I did not commit. You say we do not know black people and you’re obviously right. Likewise, you do not know white people, not this one anyway, if you think that I would tolerate you living in a past that you did not witness
    And intend to hold me responsible for, though I wasn’t there either. That’s not the way to move forward. My family moves forward by treating all as they wish to be treated, judging others based on their actions, not on their color and holding oneself to a higher standard than those around you. This article is not without merit, however; I will use it to demonstrate what racism and prejudice and hate looks like so they can be sure to recognize it in the future.
