What is racist is that the minute we say "black" or "African American" we are conditioned to think: poor, unhealthy, bad, ignorant, thugs, etc. And the idea of being white and CHOOSING to put your child in a school where he/she would be the minority is seen as near abuse to many so called "not" racists.
Now an all Asian school may not be as bad in some of these peoples eyes as in much of this country Asian is equated with: intelligence, good educational values, quiet, calm. A stereotype opposite of the black stereotype. NEITHER are correct.
C'mon, why is it so much more acceptable for a white couple to adopt and asian child than a black child in most of the USA? (I am not talking about domestic vs. international adoption, I am talking about overall acceptance of a generalized community). Racism is real. Many people do not realize how racist they are until it is IN THEIR FACE.
People of color suffer tremendously at the hands of white people but we don't have the option of segregating ourselves based on past hurt or wrongs. Give me a break.
Again, I go back to how nice it must be to have such privilege that you can speak as if black folks aren't present or don't have feelings.
Menudo, thank you for speaking up!
