What Black Educators Are Saying About the Effects of Race On Our Sons

May 31, 2014 Leave a comment

The Hechinger Report, a non-profit organization that contributes stellar reporting on education issues, asked Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Nick Chiles to go to Mississippi to start chronicling the educational and societal woes of Black boys in the state, he jumped at the chance. Following is an excerpt of his first dispatch. We are pleased to share it here, at MyBrownBaby.

* * *

Howard Stevenson is a professor in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania whose area of specialization is a topic most white educators would probably rather sit for a root canal than confront head-on: How their unwillingness or inability to deal with their own racial biases and stereotypes leads to horrible and stressful interactions with black boys in their classrooms—interactions that can have a devastating effect on the boys’ academic achievement.

For whites and certainly even for African Americans, thinking about, discussing and recounting a racial encounter can be enormously stressful. Stevenson demonstrated by having the participants in his Coseboc workshop pair up and tell each other about any racial incident that came to mind. When asked to share their feelings later, the participants were surprised and alarmed by how much stress they felt during the retelling, almost like they were living through it again. Read more…

Hot Young Toronto Rapper Has A Vivid Dream About Making Millz

 

BBE Records artist Millz gets set to release his debut album Dopamine: A Vivid Dream

Toronto, ON — In what has become a mecca for new talent, another artist from Toronto has emerged, poised to continue the northern uprising and introduce the world to Dopamine: A Vivid Dream, the debut album from rapper Millz. Signed to BBE Records (J Dilla, DJ Jazzy Jeff, will.i.am) and managed by Nova Music Group (Glenn Lewis, 80 Empire, and other yet to be announced emerging artists), Millz has already received high praise from industry insiders on his upcoming debut. Dopamine: A Vivid Dream will be available on June 2, 2014.

 

The son of a basketball coach, Millz was a young star in the making growing up playing alongside 2013 NBA #1 draft pick Anthony Bennett (Cleveland Cavaliers) and projected 2014 #1 pick Andrew Wiggins, but music was what truly inspired him. His dad introduced him to the music of the Notorious B.I.G., 2pac, Snoop Dogg, Zapp & Roger Troutman, and Tony Toni Tone prompting Millz to give up basketball and follow his passion towards a career in the music industry. The result is Dopamine: A Vivid Dream, Millz’s highly anticipated debut on BBE Records. Read more…

It Needs To BE CED: Is Mark Cuban REALLY Racist?

May 22, 2014 1 comment

 photo is-mark-cuban-really-racist-the-industry-cosign_zpsd6794632.jpg“If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I’ll move to the other side of the street. If I see a white guy with a shaved head and tattoos (on the side he now is on), I’ll move back to the other side of the street. None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses.” Mark Cuban

Now, with this statement, the whole world is going bananas by saying Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, is racist. Of course, this comes on the heels of the Donald Sterling (LA Clipper owner caught on audiotape making disparaging statements about and towards Blacks) controversy.

I read the whole statement and, although I can’t prove that he is indeed racist, the thought I got out of that statement is that he is prejudicial. And no, that’s not the same thing, although a racist is prejudicial. In fact, this is the other quote people are reporting on, “I know I’m prejudiced, and I know I’m bigoted in a lot of different ways.” But, does this make him a racist? Read more…
