Probably the most important lesson on racism we’ll ever learn

The racism experiment video that’s been making the rounds in social media. So brilliant in its method, so disturbing because it shows how easily and quickly we turn on each other when our differences are pointed out and “defined”. (Thanks to Upworthy for bringing this to everyone’s attention.)

‘Don’t You Worry Child’ by PS22 Chorus and Ithacappella

My love for PS22 Chorus has a lot to do with good music, but even more to do with passion (from them) and hope (for me). The way the kids move and sing, the way their voices come together – it always moves me.

Chorus director Gregg “Mr. B” Breinberg inspires me to want to make a difference in my own little circle because he is proof that, with talent, hard work and dedication, I can. That’s the “what” of it. The “how” I have yet to figure out.

I love how these kids are getting the opportunity and mentoring of a lifetime with Mr. B, and I can only hope and pray that my kid should be so lucky to find her own versions of “PS22” as she grows up.
