Read it, but here’s the money:
Adelaide Lancaster of Webster Groves and Laura Horwitz of Clayton, started organizing the We Stories nonprofit last year, looking for a way they could respond to Ferguson as parents of young children.
Every month, We Stories organizes reading resources, discussion aids and events around a theme. The events can include history walking tours, storytimes, coffee chats and anti-racism workshops by the Anti-Defamation League. For example, in a month with a theme of “neighborhoods,” We Stories would feature a book that comes with discussion questions for families like: Who’s missing from your neighborhood? Does everyone look alike or different?
Adelaide Lancaster and Laura Horwitz ought to move out of evil Webster Groves and evil Clayton, where black people are sorely missing (*), and move to north city.
A frequently cited 2007 study in the Journal of Marriage and Family showed that nonwhite families talk about race three times as often as white families do, and that the majority of white families don’t talk about race.
Because white people are told not to think tribally, not to notice race, that there’s no such thing as race in reality, that it’s just a social construct.
(*) – Officially, Clayton is 8% black, but in reality, its residential sections aren’t even 1% black. What explains the disconnect? “Officially” means U.S. Census Bureau, and Census counts jail and prison inmates of residents of the geography where the jail or prison is on census day, not where the inmate lived before he got sent to jail or prison. The seat of St. Louis County government and its “justice center” is in Clayton. I just wanted to let you know that before snooty Claytonite tries to deceive you with that 8% legerdemain to make you think Clayton has diversity.
