Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
"My parents took me to see the film [Silver Linings Playbook] in Toronto and afterwards my dad was crying. I swear it had nothing to do with my performance though. At the end I have this monologue with Robert De Niro where I pop a Budweiser, and I think that’s what did it. I know my father, and that moment I looked at him, and there he was crying. I remember on set I said, ‘My dad’s gonna cry when he sees me drinking this bud,’ and he did. They are mostly proud of me drinking that beer."
Sunday morning coffee, anyone?
