teach the babies

While I’m glad that this is getting a bit of coverage, the study went deeper than that and also addressed how racial socialization better improved young Black mens’ self-esteem than it did their young women counterparts. There have been other studies which show that it’s easier for Black men to “assimilate” into their school environments than young Black women, and from what it seems like, that’s because you can teach girls they aren’t worth much because of their skin, while treasuring Black men for the same reason.
Very tricky subject, but it’s definitely something that needs to be discussed and covered more.
