Being a Young Black Male Teacher
Matthew R. Morris

Every colleague notices. Not abusive comments, but the comments that Brad didn’t get when he rocked his brand new New Balances into work. The microaggressions of racism.

Purely curious, because I don’t know what this passage means. What’s going on here?

Also, someone else touched on it, but “awesome!” being a dude and a grade school teacher. There aren’t many out there, and I think that’s sorely lacking at that level. It takes a special person to deal with little kids all day, every day.
