I'm currently teaching a graduate college class on multicultural education. My students are sharing some really sad stories about blatant prejudice that they or their friends have experienced.
I still have a difficult time grasping that some people honestly believe that the amount of melanin in your skin determines your station in life. Have we moved forward so little in the last 50 years? If, today, the amount of melanin in your skin is seen as negative then what will it be tomorrow? Perhaps people with green eyes will be inferior?
If you have a true story about some prejudice you or a friend has suffered, please leave it on my blog. I'd like to use them as examples with my students. Thank you.
Perhaps it's more important than ever to teach
Dr. Martin Luther King's message to our children.
