How does it feel? *D’Angelo Voice*

Y’all. We’ve been skating on this ice for a looooong time.

There have been numerous booksblogs, and (painful) instructional videosrelated to talking to children about race.

So I was really excited to watch PBS’s The Talk which aired this week, hoping that the show would focus on the painful emotions caused by police brutality for minority families.

While The Talk did add multiple perspectives to the dialogue (e.g., parents, police officers, and community members), there continued to be a blind spot that the documentary did not redress.

Given that there is no one right way to stay ‘unshot’ around police officers, what on Earth does it feel like to have to talk to your kids about such racial encounters?
