from Yangtze, The Long River, by Nadav Kander

History is most often the best teacher. Many people of color groups – Asian American, Latinos/as, Native American, Arab and Middle Eastern – experience the dominant narrative of the US as existing in a Black/White racial paradigm. Our schools provide limited education with respect to the historic colonialization of the people of the Americas, South East Asia, and more recently the Middle East. Members of these communities know their own history and to be told their stories must be made to fit into the commonly understood Black/White racial paradigm of the United States is profoundly dehumanizing. Native Americans, Asian Americans and Latino/as are constantly experiencing their history, social and statistical reality as “insignificant” in the context of the United States in comparison to African-Americans. Even more recent African immigrants detest the ever-present assumption that they fit into the African-American narrative. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks of this in her TED Talk – the Danger of a Single Story The hidden implication is that power continues to be held by those who create and maintain “the story”, who tells the story and where and when the story gets told.

Jo Ann Mundy is one of two co-Executive Directors of ERAC/Ce (Eliminating Racism and Claiming/Celebrating Equality), and a Core Organizer-Trainer for Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training, a national partner working collaboratively with ERAC/Ce toward the institutionalization of racial justice in public and private institutions throughout southwest Michigan.

i hope they will be old enough to attend school in september and then maybe they get calmer? i mean… really… this is loud. and the ceiling is literally trembling. and it never stops. 

+ what else gets me angry today:

i really want to go upstairs to the new neighbours that moved into the flat right above ours. i would like to go upstairs with a box full of 1000 butterflies and then i would let them free in their flat. 

(just as a revenge to the permanent (15 hours/day) noise and jumping children and screaming children. really, you could think a whole kindergarten moved in and they are just playing jump-and-run-games. it’s terrible.)
