This morning I read an article written by a successful black man. In it he shared that he and his wife were educated, hard working people who had achieved “the American dream”. Their children went to private school and during the summer they attended enrichment classes given on some of country’s premier college campuses. This summer the man’s son was minding his own business when a car pulled up full of white guys who casually called their precious son the n-word. The son was so stunned he asked the guy to repeat it and the guy complied. When the son returned to his dorm he called his father and told him what he had just experienced. The father was also shocked but the question is why? Did he truly believe that living the good life provided armor from ignorance? You can raise your children to be color blind but never forget not everyone parents like you do. Share your thoughts.
Does privilege insulate our children from racism?
