In a recent interview, Teedra Moses opens up about teaching her sons to love themselves in order to deal with racism.
She tells Voice Online:
“We live in this world, we’re not of the world. That’s what I was taught and that’s what I taught my sons. So my sons are very aware that they’re black in America. But they’re also aware that they’re kings in the universe and that’s what I’ve taught them to focus on so they can walk with their heads tall.
“They carry themselves very respectfully because they respect themselves.
“Have they encountered racism? Yeah. But they also understand the ignorance of that. When you know who you are, you have a total different perspective to racism and prejudice.”
“You can’t tell my sons, ‘You don’t deserve that because you’re black’ or ‘you’re just a n****r’, because my sons know exactly who they are. I’ve raised them to be kings.”
Yes I agree with everything she said. I love Teedra she is so underrated her album Cognac & Conversation was one of the best albums that came out last year real grown woman shit. I literally listen to her every week she is so slept on its so unfortunate she should be a bigger star.
Good for her. We really do have to equip our children for this world.
Love her music.
All black parents need to do this.
I love this. Thanks for posting.
