So for our Christmas show, every class has to pick a country in the world and present their “Christmas” traditions. All the teachers are gushing about how they want to do countries in Europe—-Bulgaria, Russia, Romania, Italy. You know me I’m sitting there like -_- thinking “there are other continents you know…”
So another teacher, my friend Lamar, is going to help me with my class (and is the only other Afrodescendant teacher that rocks her afro besides me, trust me, this matters) yells “Nosotros vamos a hacer un país Africano.” Big cheese smile. (And no we didn’t even discuss this beforehand lol)
Big silent cricket pause from the room…
then “Oh yea, oh yea, that’s a good idea.” I’m like hmmmm maybe Angola…or South Africa….or…. we both look at each other…GHANA!
CNN is doing a segment asking why young black people aren’t following the leadership of civil right’s leaders like jesse jackson & al sharpton.

I’m so tired of hearing their names tbh.
