A Girl Like Me

A Girl Like Me

A Girl Like Me is the most remarkable 21st Century example of Cultural Poisoning I have seen to date. It was created by 17 year old Kiri Davis as a YMCA film project.

WARNING! This is not easy to watch.

Put your antenna up and turn on your cultural health RaceDar on. If you really want to know the Cultural Health of Adults, the most direct approach is to ask the children. Adults have language and filters to hide the truth. Children have not yet developed these filters and as you know are startlingly direct in their answers. The bad news is that Cultural Poising exists. The Good news is that it can be cured with cultural Literacy.

The Parents of these children did not know the answer to the question, what makes you Black? Therefore they could not pass it on to their children as this film demonstrates. There is one young lady in this film that has awareness of Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt), can you tell who it is? The chain of Cultural Poisoning must be broken by you, for if not you, then who?
