You hit on excellent points Sherry Kappel ! You are spot on about how color hues are used when describing people of color. You’re also spot on about how public education dummies children down and takes away critical thinking. Kids today think their textbooks are bibles. My partners kids love to tell us how wrong we are because their books and favorite Youtube bloggers say something different. They hand write 2 page essays frequently with why they are wrong.
The conditioning of readership to see Brown and Black people of color as deficient\defective permeates our society. Gotta call it out every chance we get. Thanks so much for reading and teaching the tricks of the right.
