What if segregation still went on?
I honestly think its because their parents lacked the education and connection with Africans and so therefore they had no knowledge to say about Africa or Africans. They couldn't inform their kids on where they specifically came from, as If the past generation were embarrassed of losing such a connection. And when someone is embarrassed of something, they tend to suppress that memory. If the memory is suppressed, how can it be retrieved to pass on. This cycle has been going on for years, and I have to remind my sister every day that black is beautiful and that there is nothing wrong with it.
And not to mention some teachers these days are good for nothing, they treat this job just like the title "a job". But means so much more, because at times the teacher spends more time with the children than the parents do. They're cultivating the children in their classes. Yet, they're worried about getting a check.
I don't think integration did anything but separate us Black people the more. We should've asked for the same quality of education that the white students were getting, but still having the choice to stay at our black schools. Because now we have some of these crappy white teachers who don't give a shit about the black children. And render them useless from day one. I'm sure some black teachers do the same, but I'd find that rare because they'd try to at least identify with their own kind first. So what can we do now to change these styles that teachers have? What can we do to erase this negative thought that tends to instill in our minds at an early age that BLACK is bad or negative?
Because, the future of our children is at stake. And I can't have my children's mind polluted with lies.
