Confronting Racism

I've never heard of Jay Smooth before encountering this brilliant video on a friend's FB page.  I've always resisted the idea that Hip-Hop is a form of poetry (my oldest son commented that he thought Rap was "manly poetry"), but after listening to this video, I have to admit Jay has a way with words!

We played this for the 12-year old entering middle school next year. He got it. He laughed at the funny bits, but he got it, and hopefully this helps him navigate tricky waters when pointing out uncomfortable truths.
