I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. Thanks for posting this, Angela. This was an issue that made my blood boil when I was an education reporter.
    Ridiculous zero- tolerance school policies are part of a national criminalization of Black children that is designed to move them efficiently through a series of chutes, ending at age 18 in state prison. Oh, and essentially donating their labor to private corporations via the skyrocketing rise of for-profit prison industries.
    School boards under pressure to prove tough, proactive responses to drug and weapons use, bullying, sexual harassment, etc, implement these punitive, ineffective rules, and they can be pressured to dump them as well. More and more white suburban districts have voted them out, and wherever boards are not appointed, parents can give them the boot at the next election,
    Zero tolerence functions to take the focus off the real causes of social problems. That’s why it can’t distinguish a normal kid fight from a crime. And with everyone lumped in together, those children who DO need support for violence-related issues are assigned criminal identities instead.

    Now everyone’s got one.

    Meanwhile, as society clucks its disapproval of all those bad Black children, white policy makers continue to erode the integrity of their families, homes, communities and health. Toxins are often present in the ground they play on, the air they breathe, the water they drink, and the homes they live in.
    Let’s see a big, fat zero-tolerance for THAT! Let’s insist on hundreds of millions of dollars in damages!
    And let’s add child endangerment, child abuse, and civil rights violations to all the other charges.

    Let’s make racism unaffordable!


    1. Claire, you bring up these interesting balancing solutions. Let’s have zero tolerance to the abuses of the law that inflict terror on groups of American citizens. Policymakers ignoring such offenses are deemed in violation and subjected to the same cruel and inhumane treatment at the hands of law enforcement and courts. Zero-tolerance and the same apply for the other stakeholders.

      I agree: Let’s make RACISM unaffordable!
