Monday, the Anti-Racist Parent blog will become Love Isn’t Enough and we’ll get a sparkly new logo to boot. Why the name change? Well, for a while, Carmen and I have worried that “Anti-Racist Parent” does not fully explain what we are about. We talk about race, mostly, but we also want to talk about education and self-esteem and childcare and religion and gender bias and homophobia and the things all parents, regardless of race, worry about…and how all that stuff intersects with race. Being a parent can be joyous, but it ain’t easy. One thing is for sure, simply loving a child is not enough to ensure his or her well-being–at least not “love” in the passive way that people too often think of it. To be an anti-racist parent is to be proactive–to love and to guide and to protect and to teach and so much more. Read our post: What We Believe: Love Isn’t Enough.
So, stay tuned for a new name, more content, new contributors, plus all of the things we hope you’ve come to love about this space.
You will still be able to reach the new site through this URL as we make the transition.
