Kill Them Before They Grow: Misdiagnosis of African American Boys in American Classrooms

This book contends that the American public education system has made “black male” synonymous with “disabled” through the creation of the labels “Behavior Disorders” and “Emotional Disorders.” These labels, which say that African American boys cannot behave without special treatment, juvenile probation, and, in many cases, drugs, condemns African American boys to the bottom of the educational ladder.

White supremacists in American education are determined to miseducate, and thereby destroy, the minds of African children, especially males. Medication for behavior problems only stigmatizes these children and condemns them to further segregation and poor academic achievement.

Multicultural education as it is practiced is no solution; it only pays lip service to acknowledgment of cultures other than the dominant Caucasian culture.
