So I'm going to post some links.... All purchases go to supporting initiatives I am a part of/helping to lead. Recently had somebody reach out asking for my Venmo to compensate me for all they learn from me on Twitter. I appreciate that. Here are additional ways...[THREAD]
#Educolor is my heart home. It is where familia, intense dreaming, and powerful activism centered around educational equity starts and ends for me.
#DisruptTexts is a little thing we have going on recognized by @NYTimesLearning and @chicagotribune so let's keep disrupting the literary canon and all THAT.…

1. I'm creating this thread to discuss how epistemicide is common in critical qual research, and why we must be vigilant of it.

2. First - what is epistemicide? It is the erasure, dismissal of culturally-situated ways of learning and knowing that would otherwise be critical to creating knowledge (in qualitative research). This occurs to center dominant discourses. #academictwitter #highered #phdadvice
3. At a conference, I met an emerging scholar of color, who is working on race and identity from his sociolcultural position, but he was working with theories that had nothing to do with his work (Read: Dead, white French guys). #AcademicTwitter #phdforum #educolor #highered #phd

I feel as if it’s fair to spend a little time speaking candidly about race in education, don’t you? There are so many with questions, and others, anxious to use their voice. Educators, let’s come together in order to grow together. #EduColor
While there are a myriad of needs to address, I will primarily be speaking about the Black experience in education - both as a scholar, and an educator.

Others, feel free to chime in with any thoughts, experiences, perspectives, and questions.
Where to start?

Ahh... Racism is America’s oxygen. All of us breathe it in. No one is untouched by it. Our country was built on the principles & evil practices of it. Every American system and institution has been poisoned by racism, including the school system.

Sometimes you read a research study and it haunts you. For me that's been the case with K. B. McKenzie's "Emotional abuse of students of color: the hidden inhumanity in our schools." All teachers should read this article. #EduColor
She's looking at the kind of things we've all heard frustrated teachers say:

"I don’t know how many times I’ve said, ‘You want a mean teacher? I can be mean to you. I would rather be nice, But if you need me to be, hey.’"

In other words: "Why do you make me do this to you?"
Before we get too far, let's be clear this isn't a study about "bad apples." From the outset McKenzie is clear that "In other words, these teachers were not purposively chosen because they were the ‘bad’ teachers, but rather they comprised all the white teachers in this school."
