this is uncomfortable

I'm going to have my students analyze the first photo. What do they see? What would it sound like? What would it feel like? How does it make them feel?

And this is a reminder for me:

EDITED TO ADD: The photo above is NOT from this past weekend. But it still says a lot. I'm still going to use it.

Here's another photo that is from this weekend, that I plan to use.

Good for you, Ms. Kwiz.

Last summer, I found myself in the midst of a BLM rally with my teenaged nephew. It was thankfully very peaceful, but I was worried about how he would process what he unexpectedly found himself surrounded by.

I was also very impressed by the Chicago PD. Yes, there are problems with police brutality in my city, there's no denying that. But they were inscrutable and professional that day. I wondered what was going in the mind of black and Hispanic officers. I'm sure that, as young men and women, they personally encountered uneven policing. What are these situations like for the minority police?

I hope you'll report back about the conversation with your class.

Would now be a good time to let you know that you are among my heroes, Kwiz? Seriously, this is such a great plan for your class, and you are a brave and good-hearted teacher. Person. Whatever. ;-)
