    There are people in our community, especially our Black friends and family, who do not feel those ways in the community, and we are wearing these shirts to say that we don’t think that’s okay.

    Our Black community is not being treated fairly, and again, we do not think that is okay. We want to tell all of you that our job is to create a place, here at school, where everyone can trust that they will be treated fairly.

    Why #BlackLivesMatter in Your Classroom Too by Cornelius Minor

    Quotes from the reading:

    “To continue with business as usual, to do nothing, to be “neutral” is a passive declaration of racism because the system that we are most intimately connected with—school—will continue to produce unjust outcomes for people of color. To be anti-racist is to be actively involved with the disruption of these systems.”

    “Being an advocate for black lives does not mean that I am an advocate against any other lives. When we make the conscious decision to address persisting injustices, this broadens access to justice for everyone.”
