“There’s still quite a few people who think that ADHD is itself a parenting problem. And that stigma most definitely is also applied to Black people at a far greater rate than it is to white people. Even if it were behavioral problems…you will still see more sympathy for white parents than you would see for black parents.”
Erynn Brook is a writer living in Toronto, Canada. She write for thefullestmag.com regularly, freelance around the web, and here on this blog sporadically. Her writing weaves through conversations about media, people, culture, technology and anything else that pops into my world. She loves talking about the way we talk about things, and my work often touches on systems of oppression, through a feminist lens heavily informed by intersectional feminist voices.
