“Students of color are allowed to enter the classroom but never on an equal footing. When they walk in, they are subject to the same racial stereotypes and expectations that exist in the larger society. Students of color do not have the advantage of walking into a classroom as individuals; they walk in as black, brown, [yellow] or red persons with all the connotations such racialization raises in the classroom. They do not walk into a classroom where the curriculum embraces their histories. They walk into a classroom where their histories and cultures are distorted, where they feel confused about their own identities, vulnerabilities, and oppressions. There is no level of liberal reforms that can alter these experiences for students of color without directly challenging the larger systems in society.”
Critical Race Theory Matters: Education and Ideology | Margaret Zamudio, Caskey Russell, Francisco Rios & Jacquelyn Bridgeman (via sinidentidades)

This is so very true. Being an honors student in high school only amplified this 10,000 times. I was often the only black student in my class. Teachers would always ask me what’s the “black perspective.” Like suddenly I’m the spokes person for the African- American community. One thing that I envy of other races in America that their culture and language was preserved. Especially if your ancestors immigrated from their home country. But like the Native Americans mine was not. I barely have record of who my great-great grandmother is, and it bothers me still.
