Glynn Turman tells us why Black elementary school kids getting racist drawings during Black History Month isn’t a story that shocks him … and he’s got some incredible words for the kids that were apparently targeted.
We got the longtime actor at Wally’s in Bev Hills … and, as he puts it, hatred like this is deeply rooted in America’s DNA, which is why it’s an incident we should’ve seen coming — and he calls out the lack of education as a reason why.
Glynn says we can’t keep burying racism in this country, pointing to this vulgar act as an example. He’s also got words of wisdom for Black kids who are facing hatred like this in schools today … check it out, it’s incredibly powerful.
As we reported, drawings saying things like “To my favorite cotton picker” and “You’re my favorite monkey” were passed out at Pepper Tree Elementary School in Upland, CA … needless to say, parents of the targeted students were outraged.
We spoke with the school’s PTA President, who told us the students aren’t being held accountable — adding the drawings were made on their own, without a teacher’s approval.
