Students of color are allowed to enter the classroom but never on an equal footing. When they walk in, they are subject to the same racial stereotypes and expectations that exist in the larger society. Students of color do not have the advantage of walking into a classroom as individuals; they walk in as black, brown, [yellow] or red persons with all the connotations such racialization raises in the classroom. They do not walk into a classroom where the curriculum embraces their histories. They walk into a classroom where their histories and cultures are distorted, where they feel confused about their own identities, vulnerabilities, and oppressions. There is no level of liberal reforms that can alter these experiences for students of color without directly challenging the larger systems in society.
here’s an idea: people shouldn’t actually have to have a job to be allowed to remain alive
That Stiles post circulating should have been about the people Stiles has hurt and how it’s time for Stiles to grow the fuck up and stop being an asshole just because he can. Instead, Stiles stans have congregated on the post to write essays about how special and damaged Stiles is and have completely excused him from being a decent human being and treating people with respect and/or empathy.
Someone should make a gif set of Stiles being hurtful and a dick, just so we set the record straight. I’m not even generally anti-Stiles, he’s my baby like all the main cast, I just know that he’s a jerk and it would be a good moment to remind those that forgot.
