BHM I am upset.

My 6th grade sister told me they are reading The Help for Black History Month at school.

I am BEYOND UPSET.

I am writing an angry email bc I am an angry black woman right now.

If they do not reply to my email I am rolling up there ready to bust some heads and throw some 'bows.

'tis all

This is a white school, isnt t?

I would have been rip shyt. Not only is it not a very good book, from what I heard, how the hell is it supposed to uplift anyone?

This is exactly why. Want to be in full control of the black history month curriculum I am developing for my class and ultimately the school. Whit people just don't want us aging anything.

That's even WORSE! How do you choose that book at all to teach black kids--unless you are examining the racism of the AUTHOR? I'd write several emails ad take myself to the school to have somebody explain something.
