"This is in 1908. Belgians reading the bible before hanging a 7 year old black child in the Congo under King Leopold. The boy was hanged because his father did not produce enough wheat for the colonialists."
Thanks to James Kimbrough, and Kribsoo's Diallo 's sharing the picture.

Leopold II of Belgium - Wikipedia
Jo Neverdahl Hayes It does sound a bit TO familiar. ☹
Crystal Xena LC Huang The link is about the old Imperialism, Colonialism, and Independent movements. What about the post-imperialism, neo-colonialism,
and the current "Narcissistic Fascism"? http://www.fsmitha.com/h2/ch23brit.htm
Independence Movements, to 1960

Thanks for your like and comments. In several occasions, as a privileged non-white, non-native English speaking Art and Social Science educator (the very first one hired since the establishment of the school in1912), particularly, in the Diversity Studies or Sociology (regarding social/global stratification) classrooms, whenever touching on the above topics, I tend to run the risk being labeled as a "Racist" by some students... Racism to whom for what :)?
That is too much a "compliment' to me !
I have no clue if I have any bit of the "capacity" to be one; perhaps waiting for about " 3 to 5 hundred years" later? !
Jo Neverdahl Hayes Crystal. You bring me so much joy. Your passion and compassion are so wonderful.
Crystal Xena LC Huang Jo Neverdahl Hayes because you took your learning seriously, and responsibly !

Just read an article published by TCRecord regarding "Parrhēsia" of Foucault, which could be defined as the ability to speak the truth in spite of danger or fear. (Wooow, how idealistic, if not heroic !!)
Encouragingly, the paper concludes that the courage to provide multiple critical thinking approaches in the pedagogy (in this case, pre/in-service teachers), though embedded with risk, is worthy of doing for the sake of the common good (note, a minor comment: before losing his/her job ? or enthroned as a martyr :D!)
