White Racism joins forces as white teachers defy dress code to wear T-shirts in support of the NYPD.
ARE White teachers essentially expressing their support for the School to prison pipeline!
Are White teachers expressing SUPPORT for the unjustified murder via choke-hold of a black man?
Frankly, as a teacher, I am appalled!
Black parents have a right to view these white teachers suspiciously!

Shame is powerful!
My take away from many of the lectures of Melissa Harris- Perry.
Categories of Shame:
One's Image is shamed:
There is a particular kind of shame is hammered out onto the bodies of black women in America and the world.
* Reproduction: Too many black babies born without fathers & are dependent on the government. The truth is that there are more white women on welfare. Next in line are the Mexicans. Black women are third in the welfare line.
*Welfare Queens:A complete lie conjured up by Ronald Reagan, the white, racist, witch doctor, via his Southern Strategy and the politics of race.
*Poverty: Homelessness, as many black women are evicted as black men are in prison.
*Aesthetics: Hair type(wearing weave vs wearing natural hair), nose shape, lip thickness, light skin/dark skin, color of eyes etc
*Insufficient Mothers: Hollywood has shown black mothers to be the bane of the black child's existence-wholly negative and deplorable. These portrayal make Mommy Dearest look like Mother of the Year.
This Shame Theory is:
*Tied to anxiety
*The overproduction of the stress enzyme cortisol
*Equals fat in the middle (midsection)
Chronic shame overworks the Endocrine System and it's implicate in black women's health issues.
*The shaming gaze is totalizing and makes women want to hide, to disappear, to be invisible.
Myths about shame:
*Respect counters shame. This is a complete lie especially when dealing with people and the people who run entities who have nearly emptied themselves of their own humanity. They have no self-respect; therefore, they do no respect any other representation of humanity. White Racism/White Supremacy does not have any Respect for anything that does not act like it, walk like it, talk like it and most of all look like it.
"The evil that lives in the world is ruthless and powerful."
"The poor, The blacks, and the indigent become the stepping stones of the careers for those who make it up!"
"The stick floor of the pink ghetto." Gloria Stienum
"The doctrine of White Supremacy is a stupendous delusion, and people who cling to their delusions find it difficult if not impossible to learn anything worth learning." James Baldwin
"To be born black in America is an immediate moral challenge." Baldwin
1. Blame the VICTIM.
2. Divide and CONQUER.
3. Keep the people OPPRESSED with the master's Concerns.
I find that Ms. Lorde is correct in her assessment. At every level, the American Machine deploys said tools, to maintain white Supremacy, to maintain black Inferiority, and in that way, the sort of CAPITALISM, that really isn't capitalism at all, that keeps the masses at bay financially, poor, and overwrought prevails again and again.

In White America's version of Noah's Ark,
There are no black people present on Noah's Ark!
There are no black people present when God destroys the world!
There are no black people present when God reconstructs the world!
There are no black people present durnig the stages of nation building!
Black people have been ERASED!
The director's response to the nonexistance of black people in the film: He wants it to be a film that everyone can see.
Erasure is problamatic!
In America, words such as UNIVERSALISM! COLOR BLIND! POST-RACIAL!
are bantered about daily.
Since the election of the first African-American president in America, President Obama, these words/phrases have been unearthed and flung from the guts of every guilt ridden, white, racist looking for a salve to ease the pain of white guilt. This guilt is theirs and theirs alone; it is rooted in their participation in and perpetuation of the enslavement of Africans in America! "White Noise" lurches from the earth's floor, pings on the four walls of America while blaring, screaming, denying blackness and the existance of an entire nation of people whom they WRONGED for four generations.
DENY! DENY! DENY! Their refrain.
I am sick of their noise!
Erasure is problamatic!
I don't like
