A course on toxic whiteness and how it interferes with the education and well-being of Black children, and how to stop the violence.
“When children attend schools that place a greater value on discipline and security than on knowledge and intellectual development, they are attending prep schools for prison.”
— Angela Y. Davis
Are your toxic whiteness and anti-black racism harming the Black students you claim you’re trying to educate?
Why You Need This Course
There’s enough research-based evidence available for you to know that Black kids are failing, but not because the children are incompetent. Instead, it’s because most white teachers bring racial bias into every interaction with Black kids, which alters the teacher’s ability to be effective in relating to students.
Who This Course Is and Is NOT For
This course IS for pre-school and K-12 teachers, administrators, counselors, and paraprofessionals serving Black students in any capacity, including after-school program staff and other educational service providers.
This course is NOT for antagonists who want to dispute the truth, argue, minimize the reality, or center the feelings of whiteness. I reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone I deem antagonistic or problematic.
What This Course Is and Is Not
This course is NOT diversity training. Diversity is not the problem; lack of accountability is. Diversity and inclusion efforts are futile without first addressing systemic racism and anti-blackness.
There are NO CEUs. I do not offer CEUs for my anti-racism training. I will not provide credit for people to be decent human beings.
This course IS anti-racism training. The failure rates of Black students are directly related to systemic and systematic racism and oppression. We must address racism.
