This is a heartbreaking story as two small children had to learn about racism the hard way.
Our very own Toni Ringgold's 7-year old daughter couldn't attend a sleepover because of her classmate's parents' dislike for black people.
According to the facebook post below here's the exchange that occured:
Because of the sad situation, she is now holding a community sleepover open to ALL RACES...
First of all, let's be clear.
This is all a BIG misunderstanding.
Here's my overall observation (Stay with me now):
Some white people don't know, don't witness, and don't experience what some black people go through daily because it doesn't exist in their world.
Wow! These students were trying to get information on furthering their education, but they were taunted by racial slurs on campus? Is this another reason that there is still a need for Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs)? Get the details and vote!
