“I [STILL] can’t breathe”: Supporting kids of color amid racialized violence, June 5, 2020

I5oKzB7ckb5XYZgvASuVu8dRItBUHpeE3UKyTKKwwkXAp32rEvj-fD1UcnmTBEV9M7k7VUW0VSDWc6cuju2CNcHfOQcB92zuLSud9YYIeF3nIzzUnLBnEmimFvq5rDsffK5PRCjhKZGPVKyGo06PLqKFl-55hxMbxdQ=s0-d-e1-ft

Black, Brown, Native peoples, poor people – we talk with our children about how to interact with police. We file formal complaints against abusive officers. (Derek Chauvin had at least SEVENTEEN complaints on his record before his encounter with George Floyd.) We take videos that go viral. We share our stories with media outlets. We file lawsuits. We protest, allies at our side. If it were just up to us to stop the racialized violence directed against us, we’d be having a completely different conversation right now.

With COVID-19 as backdrop, some predict a “long, hot summer.” Others see a promising new determination by many Whites to become a vigorous part of the solution. In this complicated context, what conversations about policing, violence, safety, justice, and race should we be having with our children of color?
