One thought on “Welcome to the Official Sophia A. Nelson Blog

  1. I am a 61 year-old, white woman who saw you on CSPAN this morning. I was a high school, science teacher in a inner-city, 98% black in 1985-88 (Richmond, VA). I noticed then and I still notice that black people seem to eschew an education because it is “white” to speak properly, or be knowledgeable. I even had black students say that being polite was white. I’m afraid that fairly closed black neighborhoods teach their children what is white and then to hate it or reject it as white. Is it an accident that Obama, Mr Gates and other successful blacks were not raised in a predominantly black world? I know there are far more examples of successful blacks coming from black neighborhoods, but I wonder how much reverse racism is toxic to blacks today. I know it was very toxic to the majority of my students back in the ’80’s. You had a black man call in and say he was not voting at all, a cynical attitude influenced by victim’s assumption that he has no control over improvement. I think an attitude toward Obama that has been fed by a narrative that getting an education makes you more white, is a result of this reverse racism. I think that until blacks see an education and knowledge as a part of themselves, their own birthright, like Dr. King did, blacks will be doomed to under-employment and prey to rip-offs. I hope you understand what I’m trying to say and can articulate it better than I may have done. I hate to see people of any color make themselves victims when the door to the cage is open and their wings work perfectly well.
