This isn’t for everyone, but for me, I read books about Whiteness - White Fragility, Raising Race Questions, and even White Rage - as a better way for me to understand what I was witnessing. It helped me to “depersonalize” interactions and focus on systemic issues.

Why are survivors of violence (asylees, survivors of hate crimes, etc) asked to PROVE their experiences, instead of us initially believing them or at least giving them the benefit of the doubt? That is a systemic problem that makes survivors not want to seek help.

First, it’s so odd so many are so anti-immigrant, considering that similar policies (quotas/bans) prevented most Asians from coming to US prior to 1965. We need to ensure that AAPIs continue to be part of the immigration narrative

"If you present yourself at the border seeking asylum, you have a legal right to a hearing under domestic & international law. They are refugees... civilian non-combatants who have not committed a crime, & who say they are fleeing violence & persecution."

Only just started 'Tell Me Who You Are,' but I am stunned at this collection of voices & the care & intention by the two powerful young people who made this happen. Excellent for American Lit and for , like this powerful excerpt.

"That belonging is not dependent on being part of the echo chamber; belonging can also mean being truth-tellers, unafraid to say that the emperor has no clothes." So much, as always, by here. ❤️✊🏾

Everything that does in her classroom is a model of how we can invite students into critical conversations about picture books. Here's one of her posts, of many others (check out her blog!)

How do you spend the first day of summer vacation? Got to reconnect and spent the morning in great conversation with thinking about how we can decolonize our classrooms and reimagine our teaching! ✊🏽

So is Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria by Beverly Daniel Tatum. It has research and scenarios of how children are already navigating racism by age 3 and up. Educators can either ignore it or address it.

Same. I insist on texts. I also insist that they be excellent. Simply b/c a text is doesn't necessarily mean it's excellent, so I am always reminded to slow down and read critically.

One of the "defenses" I've seen is that he's in high school, just a "kid" who made mistakes. That's what college admissions is: judging the things you do in high school. Also, once again, who gets the benefit of the doubt for making a "mistake"? 🤔🙄
