Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
*exasperated sigh* I cannot believe that people go around saying that shit (well, I guess I believe that there are people ignorant enough to say those things, but it astonishes me all the same).
I am fully aware that this is probably going to bring some hate my way, but I really need to vent and get this all out. It’s been swirling around my mind for the past few months and I just really need to get my bit out, to bring myself some piece of mind and hopefully knock some sense into others.

It does not escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid.
