010 - Temi Omotola - How Systemic Racism Affects Immigrant Children in our Schools

Temi Omotola is a Canadian Immigrant that moved to Canada under the BC Provincial Nominee Program - Skilled Immigration.

She is a mum of three kids - 10yo, 7 yo & 9 Months old - with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics & Computer Science and over 15 years experience in Information Technology Operations & Strategy.

She is currently running awareness campaigns pro-bono for more support & inclusiveness for immigrants in the Black Community as well as organize free empowerment & skilled events for Immigrants Kids, Stay At Home Mums amongst the visible minorities as well as Immigrant Local Business Owners. 

In this episode, Temi shares:

  1. Her experience immigrating to canada with her family, & the shock she felt when her children began experiencing racial bias in school
  2. How raising children to be “colour blind” is a problem
  3. The importance of having open discussions with children and educating them about all different races, & racism before it even starts to be a problem.

Temi shares some startling statistics about the effects that racism has on children & youth, specifically immigrant children, Black children and children of colour.  In conversations with children she has counselled, their feelings of suicide being their only option stem back to racist encounters with their peers and in their schools.  Temi asks the listeners to speak openly and honestly with their children about racism, and teach them about all different races.  It’s not just enough for adults to do better, we must also teach our children the importance of doing the work to eradicate racism & racial bias, and to be inclusive of every person.
