Why Would You Tell Your Children to Hide Their Race or Heritage?

Posted on: October 10, 2012

This summer, Alina Adams wrote a piece for Kveller in which she explained why she thinks it’s important to hide certain aspects about children’s race, ethnicity or religion when convenient. She was interviewed for NPR this morning and I just don’t know what to think.

Chava has written her thoughts here and I encourage people to read and dialogue about this topic.

To quote my friend Chanel, the whole thing has me feeling very stabby*.

 

 

*this is not in any way a threat. It’s simply something Chanel used to say when things were really infuriating, frustrating, angering, annoying.
