nadashannon:

so today in history we were discussing affirmative action in regards to college acceptance

there are three poc in my class, just three

every single other kid said that affirmative action was unfair and that it’s a form of racial bias and should be done away with and basically acted like racism…

This is a powerful story.  Humbling to anyone who speaks from a position of authority about issues outside of their experience.

Whites should stay out of the affirmative action discourse.  Men should get out of conversations about women’s reproductive rights.  Heterosexuals should recuse themselves from debates about same-sex marriage and LGBTQ rights…

…sigh… stay courageous, nadashannon… I’m sharing this with my class.
