Race, The Prince of Persia, CNN and Trevor


Thank you for your comment. I agree with you, it is shocking to see how people perceive race in the 21st Century. Particularly shocking/troubling for me is the fact that those in question in the CNN interviews were youth. Some of the clips were heartbreaking on so many levels...

I too have high hopes for the Millennials.

And, I have high hopes that if we are diligent as a community, families, parents and leaders can communicate with our children in such a way to combat the societal stereotypes that they are absorbing and modeling.

These children are so small and innocent and they are looking to us to discover the world and the way it works. Let's teach them well. Earlier in the day I posted the following tweet:

"Either the United States will destroy ignorance, or ignorance will destroy the United States."
– W.E.B. DuBois

Let's make sure we continue to work towards the former.

Thank you for reposting. A big hug to you too!
