Racism is shocking but not a surprise
It is common knowledge that black teachers are seen just as teachers who can only teach and not lead. "Oh you're good at this, or that, but you're not able to think strategically" we are told. All things are possible, but only if you are given a positive chance and are not set up to fail.
