What Do You Do When They Call You a Racist?
Tatum, Beverly Daniel
NASSP Bulletin, v82 n602 p43-48 Dec 1998
Fear of the "racist" label often leads to dysfunctional home-school communication, which disadvantages students of color. Giving honest feedback is crippled by cultural images and messages affirming whites' assumed superiority and people of color's assumed inferiority. This cycle can be interrupted by acknowledging its existence. Teachers must become interracially concerned role models. (MLH)
