Why I Won’t Teach My Son ‘Black Codes’ | Conception Season 2
Why I Won’t Teach My Son ‘Black Codes’ | Conception Season 2 Mo neighborhood and you can hear the swing back when the wind is blowing. I would hear the sirens going past late at night. You can literally go down four blocks and see abandoned building vacant Lots line with churches. That would be young men on the back deck. Always made me feel really concerned like getting in, and out of my car really watching when I leave when I come back is not like the young man, I see standing on the bus. Catching the bus to school or in their football uniforms. That’S going to be my youngboy, my son, I was just so shy with his little hands in his head full of hair, but I knew that reality was now in full effect. This is it that was start getting to work. Successful black boys keep them busy know their friends, see them well, no be a two-parent family home. Now that’s a lot of a lot of single mothers who my do. How did they raise successful black boys and they gave me the same advice, keep him busy and all his friends and surrounding with good examples, never like to talk of the things that I’m afraid of for him. I really want to talk about the things that it is that I want for him. I want him to be free to be himself walk down the street and not be stopped and frisked or be shot, and I don’t know what I can do to prevent that. I don’t want to teach him these black holds. I feel like I’m up against systems that I am place to be oppressive: two black boys to black people, a lack of opportunity and resources for these young children to be maneuvered into so that then they were reviewing. Their perspective is broader than the 4 block radius of where they grew up his one-year-old right now, so he has at least maybe till he’s 8-7. Before someone sees him message, it’s a big black boy. Every time. Every day today, I brought him home from the hospital. I was reading to him. His room is full of colors and engages their mind and vision. We got the whole thing when people see my Sunday, they see a young man who is about something something with his life. I want them to be able to see him and pass him easily they’re, not fearing him. They feel they’re safe and that he’s just another young boy, and that is how I wish that Society will look at all of our young boys. I have this one vision, but he’ll be even better than that. I believe that I hope for that. Her son is just 1, but she knows soon he will be perceived as a “big black boy.” Can she overcome the “systems” she feels are in place to oppress her young son?
