Rels 399: Black/ African Diaspora
“Dear H.S Teacher”
Curriculum structured to instill one POV; discounts others
“hide the truth”; gap in history? Only taught European history
certain children funnelled into certain pathways through the system
“Pedagogy of the Oppressed”
-different ways of teaching
-co learners
-teacher must be open to learn from students; respect both ways; different-way of engaging
with education
Black students personal relationship; answer more in this class than any other (first black
professor for many students)
Why did Kai end up in the states?
Opportunities
Racism in Canada more invisible; easily ignored; act like it doesn’t exist here
Most black academics end up in the states
USA: clear incentives for black people (want them); undo some of the blatant injustices
No opportunities in Canada; subtlety excludes them from the country
Country is losing some of the best minds
Kai: what 1 individual can do vs. what the larger system can do
-Structural racism is extremely difficult to fight
-So ingrained, so normalized
Strange that we extract Black people in society
i.e., “Today I spoke with a Black person”..
We must get to the point where we view everyone the same
Ch. 6- Calliste
-Consciousness raising individual level and structural level (119)
-Capitalism to justify the past
-All social workers should be involved in anti-racism work (all professionals should)
You need to show an understanding for alternative views.
Racism is a disease; this person is a sick person; show empathy; help them; realize their sick-
ness
-Need to find a remedy to the sickness racism is
-Want what you do to not be in the confinements of structural racism
-A different way of being
Coalition building; all people should come together to stand against racism

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
