A couple of days ago, I read a blog post from a sister who works within the public fool system. She stated emphatically that if white teachers were to be armed, she would immediately remove her Black son from the school.
Trust me. I think that that’s a great idea.
My only issue is that we are so reactive.
If white folk do this, I’ll do that.
If Dump becomes president, I’m moving to Afrika. (I wonder how many have actually repatriated.)
The reality is that teachers have always been armed with the weapons of miseducation, cultural misorientation, and low expectations. They, Black and white teachers, have been dealers in mentacide for the longest. That “mental gun” has shattered more dreams and lives than we can ever calculate.
We don’t need anything else to happen within the schools to know that the public, private, and charter fool system is no place for the young Afrikan mind.
Let’s be proactive. The proactive posture fills us with power and puts us in control of our lives and our children’s education.
This reactive stuff is LAME.
With or without guns in the classroom, our Afrikan minds don’t survive in the contaminated soil of the Eurocentric educational system. But we can do something about that.
