Teaching kids not to “see” color, denies the fact that people of different racial identities experience life very differently. Only a person living from a position of racial privilege would ever say that they don’t “see” color. It’s a way to avoid dealing with the very real truth that people’s skin color does in large part define how they are perceived by the world. — Julie Gerstein (via meggannn)

This is the six year old daughter of my lolo’s [grandpa] in-home caregiver in the Philippines. It was tough to communicate due to the language barrier, but I’d still like to think that we became good friends. Even when I returned from my exposure trip after only four days, she bolted out of the house to greet me before I barely even walked through the gate.

What can I say? Kids love me :)  haha.

I wouldn’t want to be one of those overbearing stage parents, but I would love for my future kid(s) to have some sort of hip hop steez—whether it’s MCing, DJing, Dancing, Graff Skills, etc.
