Black Caucus Position Paper, White House Conference on Children.
Weston, M. Moran; And Others
The racism, individual, institutional, and collective, that permeates American society has resulted in psychological and physical damage to its children--brown, red, black, yellow and white. This racism has created an environment which hinders the learning capacity of all children, even those with special family resources. Similarly, this racism has made it impossible for children to obtain the health services vital to their survival, growth, and development. Removal of external handicaps to the family and support of internal strengths through federally sponsored and financed programs acceptable to and designed by these families is of the highest priority. Programs that deal with discrimination in employment and lack of access to financial resources should take priority over currently popularized programs. The greatest injustice to children can be found in government failure to provide wholesome physical environments and services. A positive vote for this resolution by the White House Conference on Children delegates is vital to all children.
