How to Teach Your Children About Racism by Uchenna Umeh
Have you ever wondered what it is like to grow up Black in the United States of America?
Ever given a thought to what life would be like if you were born with the "wrong color" of skin?
Or what it feels like to have a child leave home in the morning and not return alive at dusk?
This second book in Dr. Lulu's "How to" series attempts to shed light on parenting and racism through the eyes of a Black immigrant mother.
★★ The day Mr. George Floyd was killed in broad daylight, the world got to see America and American-style policing in its true light.
As Black America mourned, the rest of the world joined in mourning, and for several days during a pandemic, the world appeared to unite. A rare unity led prominently by our youth, the next generation, fighting racial inequality.
Sadly, Mr. Floyd's death is only the tip of the iceberg in what is generations of systematic, systemic, and institutionalized racism in America.
To begin the journey towards ending racism, we must first become humanists, and educate ourselves and more importantly, our children, the next generation of leaders and activists. We must live and lead by example so that history does not continue to repeat itself.
