At what age does a black boy learn he is perceived as menacing and dangerous?
At what age is he told of systemic racism and state sanctioned brutality against someone who looks just like him?
At what age does an African-American learn that “my life doesn’t matter?”
These Are the Facts
The facts of life are vastly different if you are black or white.
There comes a time when every Black parent must have “the talk” with their child. No amount of education, manners or talent will protect them from the facts of life of being Black in America..
These are conversations that white people do not have to have with their children.
Those were facts of life I would learn late.
