This study explores the possibilities for those who have been Otherized (minorities). I refer to possibilities in this study as the potential for minority children to prevail in the aspects of life that have been hindered by those who are white. My own personal whiteness is explored as a mother and an educator. Additional exploration in this study comes from the voices and experiences of those white parents who are raising children of color and how they are dealing with their own whiteness as it relates to the upbringing of their children. This study takes a glance at the educational impacts these children are facing today and calls for the creation of a critical multiculturalism.
