My daughter came home from SHS today and told me a Ms Mosley came around to every class with a poster board that said embrace your race.....tomorrow they are to wear a shirt that represents their race....purple if your black orange if your white yellow if your Hispanic blue if your multicultural . Okay I have a real problem with this....as my daughter said what color for the human race! Isn't this promoting racism? I believe this just causes more separation between people.....I am so appalled!

I think you're right.

From dictionary.com: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

Since you asked if this is promoting racism, can you explain how this promotes that "one's on race is superior and has the right to rule others?"

It does raise an interesting question. While we should all be equal before the law and in opportunity, regardless of race, that doesn't mean we're all the same.
Without out knowing the teacher or what the school is trying to do, I'm going to go with the better angels and say the point is to be proud of who you are, no matter your race or background.
But it certainly is an interesting and fair question to ask.

I just look at saying "embrace".as showing pride or thinking your race is superior...and in talking to some of the children that is how they thought it was meant. Everyone should be proud of who they are but because I'm black should not be part of that in my opinion, I should be proud because I'm a honest hardworking or other qualities but the color of my skin does not define me as a person.

Very valid points, statesborogirl. You're right: We shouldn't let race define us, or define others because of their race.
Unfortunately, not sure we live up to that ideal all the time.

Why do we need shirts of different color when we already have skin of different colors?

Wouldn't a better exercise be for all the students to wear the same color shirt as a symbol of unity, while remaining individuals (in color, culture, etc) under the shirts?

that is a better idea-

statesborogirl commented on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 07:54 AM

I agree! Great idea!

theflyonthewall commented on Sunday, May 11, 2014 at 19:51 PM

A better idea would be to skip the shirts and to nurture the minds and souls of the students.

dirtroadlady commented on Sunday, May 11, 2014 at 20:33 PM

fly, i hope you don't mean skipping shirts altogether! -ha ha -some of those girls are barely wearing pants !

Wouldn't all the students be wearing blue shirt? Are we not all made "of one blood"? There is only one race and that is the human race. We are not separated by race more so by belief, language and geography. Embrace the human race take pride in ones on evolutionary ecology maybe?

watchdog commented on Friday, Jul 18, 2014 at 15:20 PM

One can be proud of his/her heritage without thinking their race is superior to others. We're all DIFFEREBT and that is OK, but no one race is superior or inferior to another.
