Talking With White Children About George Floyd

“Following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, many white people have been asking me, ‘What is the right thing to say to my white children about George Floyd?’

If we do this thoughtfully and steadily—which is to say daily or weekly—our children won’t end up grasping at troubling stereotypes every time a conflict arises. Instead, they will have a much clearer picture of the systemic causes of racism—and understand that George Floyd’s murder took place in the context of such systems of division, injustice, and discrimination.”
