Dr. Amos N. Wilson: Black Children Betrayed by Their Parents

“African American mothers and fathers betray their children when in seeking to escape the anguish of their oppression, they vainly court the sympathy and love of their White American and alien exploiters. They betray their children when they, in their poverty of spirit, spend all their monies and resources to purchase their self-respect and the overpriced, shoddy goods from these who hold them in utter contempt. They delude their children when they pander to the interests of other races which are inimical to their own; and when they enrich, through trade and commerce, their oppressor’s children while impoverishing their own. African mothers and fathers betray their children when they permit their oppressors to mis-educate their children.”

-Dr. Amos N. Wilson
