In 2022 these children are not allowed to be children in the USA. They live under oppression through legislative actions which denies them learning of their lineages, their ancestral history, their families tenacity and resiliency. Their strengths of being descendants of a proud and productive people, who were denied citizenship rights, and being beneficiaries of that denial due to American white racist and anti-black humanness sentiments. They are harmed by not learning about the current denial of equal liberties like their parents and ancestors before them. The silencing is a new way to make them look down and not approach what is wrong, equal or just. The lack of acknowledgement by ascended legislators their actions or in-actions in the seats of power is a tactic use by racist historically and rooted in white supremacy which says you do not matter, your ancestors do not matter.
It is a historical way to continue to marginalize and devalue their existence, humanness and their lives and it ties them to the undervalued in humanness that was done to their ancestors enslaved in this country.
