"We real cool. We
Left school. We
Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We
Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We
Jazz June. We
Die soon."

Black Nannies/White Children: Photo Series Reveals the Racial Divide in Child Care

Photographer Ellen Jacob created a photo series that delves into the lives of New York Citynannies.

The series highlights something we already knew: there is an extreme racial divide that characterizes the home child care industry.

After spending four years scouring the streets for willing subjects she discovered the majority of caregivers, aged 23 to 60, were immigrants living on the minimum wage with no sick pay, holidays or health benefits.

The photographer noted the disparity between the women’s value to the families they care for and the compensation they receive, “Mothers talk about who much they love these women and they’re part of the family yet when it comes to money they tend to be much more tight.” (via TheCulture)

"Racism has always perplexed me in this way: White supremacy claims that black people are sub-human and savage, yet it seems wholly content with leaving the raising of its children to us. 

For me, that means one of two things (or both) are true:
1. White supremacy doesn’t really believe its own propaganda.
2. It hates its children.”
-H/T Malkia Hutchinson (via sonofbaldwin)
