Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs asks parents in The Romper “How are you educating your child so that they don’t end up with their knee on the neck of a black man begging for his life?”

White parents need to teach their kids to be actively anti-racist and they need to do it early and often, St. Bernard-Jacobs writes.

“If you aren’t teaching your kid to be anti-racist, you are teaching them to be racist,” St. Bernard-Jacobs writes.

St. Bernard-Jacobs offers a few ways that kids receive messages about anti-racism in their homes and some questions we need to be asking of ourselves. Read the article here.

We all have a responsibility to do more to end racism and reject silence.
