Top #BTSF Posts of 2013

As the year, draws to a close we give thanks for the blessings of 2013.
I am particularly grateful to the #BTSF readers who have sparked brilliant dialogue and joined in tremendous efforts toward racial justice.

Check out the top ten #BTSF posts of 2013:


  1. And this trend of criminalizing rather than educating our children holds true even when said child of color is VISIBLY and OBVIOUSLY disabled. One black mother I talked to told me her child, was hitting himself, biting himself,not speaking, and had frequent meltdowns--and he did not receive an autism diagnosis until he was 12. Instead he received a ODD diagnosis.That horror of a label, Oppositional Defiant Disorder. And yes, it means exactly what it sounds like it means: misbehaving/criminal behavior

  2. Exactly! These issues are bad in isolation, and then compound one another for children of color with disabilities. smh
