I’ve seen this video all over Facebook for about the past week and a half. This post could easily turn into a dissertation, so for now, I’ll just stick with posting the video, inviting comments, and refraining from calling out my 1st grade teacher by name (and Facebook profile link), who made my life miserable for not just one year, but two (I was lucky enough to get her again for 3rd grade)!! And did I mention that she’s also dark-skinned? Self-hatred at its finest, ladies and gentlemen. Sad.
I just love the fact that this issue is so out in the open, exactly where it needs to be. It’s a tear-jerker, but so true. So sad.
