This blog focuses on issues and solutions to racism, culture, cultural difference(s), and social injustice(s) for Black and Hispanic students as they develop in families, schools, and communities. RACE (Racism, Achievement, Change, Equity) is a forum for exposing injustices, but also sharing stories, examples, practices, ideas, theories, models, and research for change.

Race/Culture Matters

This blog is for those who seek change — not who resist change. If you are not a change agent for racial/cultural justice — your post is not wanted or needed. And I will NOT respond.

We often pretend to fear what we really despise, and more often despise what we really fear.

The truth hurts…

The truth hurts and will set you free.

A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

White Guilt

It never ceases to surprise me that White guilt coupled with White privilege blinds people to real issues and problems — that they have created and benefit from. Then, when confronted about their prejudice, I or victims of racism now become the bully, insensitive, trouble maker, agitator, and so on. I am not here to console; I am shedding some additional, often ignored, information (research, experience, stories…) to open minds and change hearts. If this is not up your alley — don’t waste my time.
