White Raising Black: A Father’s Journey After George Floyd

Home / Uncategorized / White Raising Black: A Father’s Journey After George Floyd

Jason Crawford is a white parent raising two black children. He knows his son and daughter will experience prejudice and racism due to the color of their skin. He struggles, because as a white man, he feels he cannot rightly teach them how to deal with being marginalized, and at times treated as something less than human. His heart aches for the world his children will face as they grow into adulthood. 

Jason is also a veteran, having served our country in the United States Marine Corps, where he was twice deployed to Iraq. He knows all to well the effects of violence, prejudice and fear, and has written about his experiences as both a witness and perpetrator of those actions and emotions.

Join Jason and I for an excellent conversation as we explore the challenges he faces parenting a racially diverse family, understanding white privilege and what to do with it, the slippery slope of power and moving forward from the aftermath of George Floyd. Thank you to Jason for sharing his story with us.
