It’s always a good thing to have conversations with people who don’t understand why or how education for kids of urban communities differ from those in the suburbs. This one went a little to the right as one women acknowledged her privileged. She is parent (C). She then attempts to advise another mom (S) to use her privilege to just “do what ever it takes to get out of the neighborhood”.
Yep! I was livid and this is why we need more open conversations about racism. The thought that one minute she acknowledged and the next she threw shade at a parent for not using privilege to make better choices for her kids. The old “if you want it bad enough you will make it happen” mindset really disturbed me.
