Glad to see someone is talking about the school-to-prison pipeline that Black girls face in the story “School Policies, Procedures Hurt Girls of Color: Report.” Black girls are often described as too loud, too aggressive, too mouthy, grown, etc. Black girls are also unfairly treated from a young age and it will not get better unless people call it out and change their own mentality first.

Bridging the Gap

To the Washington Informer Bridge, all I can say is wow! What a great section showing young, Black people in an honest, intelligent and creative light. Great stories and photos. I also love the cartoon on the cover. Nice job, folks.
