An associate professor at the University of Georgia is claiming that white women are unknowingly creating a “dangerous situation” and perpetuating racism against “black and brown children” by becoming teachers in schools where most of the students are minorities.

University of Georgia professor Bettina L. Love suggested in an op-ed published Monday in Education Week that white women are unknowingly creating a “dangerous situation” by taking jobs in schools “filled with Black and Brown children,” as white teachers allegedly lack “knowledge, care, and love” for non-white culture.

Black - Brown - Children - United - States

“For Black and Brown children in the United States, a major part of their schooling experience is associated with White female teachers who have no understanding of their culture,” writes Love in her op-ed, before recalling her own experiences with white teachers from back when she was a young student.

“White teachers,” said the professor, “at their core, were good people, but unknowingly were murdering my spirit with their lack of knowledge, care, and love of my culture.”

Job - Educators - Black - Children - Love

“Now my job is teaching future educators about what it takes to teach beautiful Black children,” continued Love, adding that in her pursuit of educating future educators, she always seems to run into ignorant white women trying to communicate to her that they are not racist against minorities.

“But how can you love or care for someone you know so little about?” asks the associate professor in her piece.
