Why is it important that we as parents explain this to our children? To begin with, this conversation [about racism] has passed. Whether you like it or not, it happens. So I like to control the narrative in my house and what our values are and what we prioritize. Be in charge of the information or clarify the information they hear and be able to help them understand why you are hearing this, why people are thinking this. The other thing I think is important to know is that everyone needs to be a part of the conversation, whether it’s families of color or not. Because everyone has to be part of the solution. It is important for families who are not families of color to talk about privilege and how to be anti-racist. It’s a great opportunity to take a moment and show [children] how racism plays out. If the floor is not open to children to ask these questions, they are left on their own to put the pieces together.
