Mom Teaching Son ‘How to Be Black in America’

It’s no mystery that police ruthlessness against black people has really gone out of control across the years.

More and more upright people are being attacked and mistreated just because of their color, and nothing is being done to put a stop to this needless disturbance.

And now, a black mom’s video to her son has spread like a viral fire for a sad cause.

The mom wanted to paint the actualities of numerous black families here in America…

Thirty-seven-year-old Kishia Ward, who is of Stone Mountain in Georgia is the mom to 10-year-old Darius and 2 other older daughters.

She uploaded a video latterly with Darius…

Kishia is working through a set of rules with her son…

“What is it I want you to do as a young black man growing up in America,” she asks him, to which he responds, “come home and stay safe.”

She then urges Darius what he would do when communicating with a police officer…

“Be polite, be respectful, and don’t run,” Darius says as Kishia nods her head and emphasizes the point that he should never run.

The video ends with a listing of rules that Kishia wrote for her kids…

She stated, “The sad reality is that a black man can follow every rule on this list, and not come home.”

And it described correctly the severe actualities of living as a black person here in America.

It is sad that a boy as sweet as Darius needs to be acquiring these rules…

Conversing in an interview, Kishia said about her son, “He is a very sweet and mild-mannered child, everyone just adores him. To me, he is an all-round great kid.”

But notwithstanding his calm nature…

Kishia said this discussion was important because “every day you see on the news that some black man, women, or child has been killed for whatever reason.”

“They all asked the question: Why? Why do they not like us because of or skin? Why are they allowed to get away with hurting or killing people?” she clarified.

Kishia honestly doesn’t have the solution to this issue…

But all she answered was, “it will change one day, but until that day you remember how to behave so that you can come home to me.”

Kishia is fortunate to be a person who hasn’t yet been touched by these problems…

“Thankfully I have never experienced any type of racism from any police officers, neither has anyone in my immediate family. Honestly, I was walking through life blind to racism until it became an every day or every week issue,” she emphasized.

“It’s like every time you turn on the news or the radio something has happened to a black person just because of the color of their skin. Unfortunately, some of the killings are being committed by some officers. Innocent people that just did not have to die.”

But she is frequently depressed about her children…

“The older my children get, the more I become afraid for them. I can’t be with them everywhere but I can teach them how to protect themselves.”
