  5. Apparently, I can read the minds of most disempowered and silenced faculty and staff. Your experience is lackluster, you’re just doing what’s necessary to survive at the college-university, and you want someone else to say what you wish you could say Day in and day out, you...

  7. ...accomplished talking trash TO faculty and staff and ABOUT faculty and staff. It certainly doesn’t build relationships and develop resources for professional life after college. I’ve discovered this dynamic result from most PWIs not having racial conscious trainings and...

  8. For 10 years, most of my teaching and student athlete tutoring has reached minoritized and marginalized students. It is common for Black women students and Black men students to feel empowered by talking trash to faculty and staff. I ask Black students what they think gets...

  11. For 15 years I have mentored students (as a teacher and student athlete tutor) with at least one minoritized and marginalized identity. Common theme: Most students do not know the difference between “this professor had empathy and gave me an unearned ‘A’” versus “this...

  12. If power majority is comfortable, nothing is being challenged and changed. When power majority is uncomfortable because of challenges and changes, some members of minoritized groups will be removed from the equation. Keep fighting the fight in honor of the removed minoritized

  13. Example of members of minoritized and marginalized groups siding with power majority: 1. “I’m gay but I don’t mind heterosexuals having most power” 2. “I prefer men because other women are annoying” 3. “White professors feel sorry for me so I only like white professors”

  14. For thousands of years, members of minoritized and marginalized groups have sided with power majority for two main reasons: 1. Being taught all their lives that success is impossible without 100% accommodating power majority 2. Confusing “reparations” with “we need coddling”
