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…

GHANA!

And he’s been going all day. The fact that he can continue for hours is more than enough reason that this needs to stop.
