IAMSU! - Advancing on My Own
A video of a teacher violently beating little black boy in the classroom in front of the other students has become viral. Mary Hastings , a teacher at Texas was charged with assault after this video. It’s not just an assault of a black boy, it is also racism that teacher showed towards a student. This is no secret that white teachers mostly think that black youth is spoiled and untalented. They think that black kids can’t absorb the information the way white kids do, they treat them like criminals , so eventually black kids become ones. The research finds that black kids are viewed as older, less innocent than whites. Black boys as young as 10 may not be viewed in the same light of childhood innocence as their white peers, but are instead more likely to be mistaken as older, be perceived as guilty and face police violence if accused of a crime.
