Don’t allow anti-black teasing in your home

I once heard the saddest story about a Black woman who had aspirations of being a Girl Scout in elementary school. She came home and told her older brother who responded by telling her that she was “too black to be a Brownie.” She never mentioned becoming a Girl Scout again. While we don’t talk about it often enough, siblings also contribute to the tearing down of self-esteem. Shut it down.
