    Like most four-year-olds, Tyrone is intellectually curious, and has a vivid imagination. In spite of the desire among many for America to be colorblind, at every level of education black students experience disproportionate amounts of discrimination. Many middle, upper middle, and upper income Blacks adopt the victimology agenda. But even here, officers generally have acted less out of race hatred than out of a pragmatic assessment that they can fill their quotas faster by focusing on a group that commits a disproportionate share of crime. Getting suspended matters because it is correlated with being referred to law enforcement and arrested.

She has also edited several anthologies and is currently an assistant professor of English at Ohio University.

    He is the author of two previous chapbooks, Broken Tulips and Delicate Matters, the latter comprised of translations. Kendi The winner of the National Book Award in Nonfiction, Stamped from the Beginning should be required reading for anyone who still believes we are living in a post-racial America. With the use of this invention, the military was able to store perishable, life-saving medicines and blood serum near the theater of battle, helping to save more lives. And always the gift of the land itself and its capacity to heal. But it doesn't just present the problems, it offers solutions in the form of a guide to navigating away from our deep racial divides and towards equality.
