Mom Responds to Son’s Question about Slaves in This Video

A'Driane Nieves

Summary: A young boy asked his mother, A’Driane Nieves, if they are still slaves. Her answer is in the video embedded in this post.

A’Driane Nieves was asked a pretty heavy question by her young son, Brandon. He asked his mother the following: “Mom, are we still slaves? Do people still hate us, African Americans?”

As an African-American parent, how should this question be answered? Nieves decided to tackle the question the best way possible and we have her answer on video for you. It has been embedded in this post for you to watch.

Nieves provides the following as part of her answer to her son’s question:

“Yes, we are still hated. As my heart weighed heavy with this answer, the thought that came next was, “I’m brown. I am a woman. America’s not here for me. I have brown sons. I have a brown husband. America’s not here for them either.” In 2013, America is still not here for people of color. America isn’t here for my family and I because our skin is brown and we are a mixed, multicultural family. Response to Cheerios latest commercial is just one of the recent events to reinforce this belief for me.”
