How to Talk to Kids About Race


How to Talk to Kids About Race

“The worst conversation adults can have with kids about race is no conversation at all,” says author Jemar Tisby. “Talking to kids about race needs to happen early, often, and honestly.”

In a new episode of Home School, The Atlantic’s animated series about parenting, Tisby offers advice on how to have a conversation with children about race, from experiential learning to watching classic animated films.

156 THE AMERICAN BEE JOURNAL. frey, of Red Oak, Iowa, a mail agent as well as a bee-keeper, suggested the way to obtain a reversal of the decis- ion of the Postmaster General, and to admit of queens being sent by mail. T. G. Newman remarked that this occurred when he was President of the Kational Society, and it took a united effort to get the matter through. Prof. Cook obtained the assistance of several officers of the general Govern- ment, and by a personal application to the P. M. General, got the thing through. Mr. Root exhibited and described a simplicity wired frame, made to re- verse. Rev. L. Johnson made an eloquent speech in favor of bee-keeping as a pursuit for women and disabled sol- diers, etc. Mrs. L. Harrison said that she knew that women could keep bees, but she did not know that " ladies " would do so. ^Mr. Muth remarked that adulterated honey was doing us much harm, and lessened the prices which we can pro- cure. Mr. Viallon made some remarks concerning the composition of honey. The committee on resolutions re- ported the following, which were adopted: Resolved, That we, the members of this Con- press, discountenance in every way the adultera- tion of honey, and pledge ourselves hereafter, as heretofore, to sustain the honest bee-keeper in producing his genuine, unadulterated product; and especially to condemn all the work of adulter- ators as injuriuK both the public and bee-keepers generally. Resolved, That it is the opinion of this Con- gress that the Italians are superior to the brown or native races of bees, KEStiLVEi), That this Con^iress hereby tender its thanks to the managers of the World’s Centennial Cotton Exposition for the many courtesies ex- tended to it during its sessions in this city. The following essays were read and placed on file, to be published as op- portunity may be found: •’Bee-Keeping as a Pursuit," by Arthur Tood, of Pennsylvania. "The Apiary." by ,1. E. Pleasants, of California. "Can a Locality be Overstocked V" by John Y. Detwiler, of Florida. "Honey Resources of Napa County, Cal," by J. D. Knas, f>f California. " Honey I’roduction of Tennessee," by W. P. Henderson, of Tennessee. " Honey Itesources of Virginia," by J. W. Porter, of Virginia. " Honey Products of North Carolina," by A, L. Swinson, of North Carolina. Farewell addresses were made by T. G. Newman, S. C. iJoylston, Rev. L. Johnson, I’aul L. Mallon, C. F. Muth, A. I. Root, R.. Grinsell, etc. The Congress then adjourned sine die. Thomas G. Newman, Sec. J. P. H. Bkown, Pres.

I®" The Sixth semi-annual meeting of the Western Bee-keepers’ Associa- tion will be held in Unity Chapel, at St. Joseph, ilo., on Felix St., between 7th and 8th streets, on Thursday and Friday, April 9 and 10, 188.5, com- mencing at 10 a. m. on April 9. All interested in bee-culture are invited to attend and make the meeting as interesting as possible. A full pro- gramme will be prepared and a gen- eral gootl time may be expected. C. M. (JuANDALL. Sec. Bees Doing: Well.—Daniel Brothers, Sarahsville,o+ Ohio, on Feb. i5, 188.5, says : We have bad cold weather all through the month of February, the mercury reaching 10^ below zero. The bees on the summer stands are ap- parently doing well, so far, where they have plenty of good honey stores. I have 20 colonies of Italians, blacks, and h)[brids that, so far as I can tell, are doing well. Bees Affected with Diarrhea.—I. N. Bayles, (33—•5-5), Urbanna,o Iowa, on Feb. 23, 1885, says : A few years ago I bought 4 colonies of bees and increased tliem to 7 colo- nies. I left them on the summer stands, and lost all of them. I thought that where a man lost his money, there was the place to look for it; and so I bought again, and started in the spring of 1H84 with 33 colonies, in- creased them to Ho and sold §182 worth of honey, being an average of $4 per colony. Last winter I lost 17 colonies out of 48, and I think my loss will be as great this winter. My bees have the diarrhea now, and many of them are in bad condition. They have not had a llight since Dec. 1, and I think that it will be 3 weeks before they can have another, as the snow is very deep yet. I think that this has been the coldest winter that I have ever seen. I am taking the assessment of our townsliip, and the census also, and when I get through I will report the number of colonies of bees in this township, and their products. Report, etc.-C. W. Young, Strat- ford, Ont., on Feb. 23, writes as fol- lows : The months of January and Febru- ary have been the coldest known for years in Ontario, and probably in the Northern States, also. The mercury has been below zero on all except 2 or 3 days, and has marked as low as 23" or 2.5^ on several occasions. Reason- ing from the last cold winter—1881,1 believe—there should be a decimation of bees. I have about 20 colonies, all outside ; a few are in chaff hives, the rest in single-walled hives, around which a shed of rough boards was built, with 3 or 4 inches of shavings packed around them. A second story was put on and half filled with shav- ings, and the cover on top. I exam- ined several colonies, to-day, and found no dead ones, so far. It may interest bee-keepers who are printers as well, to know that honey is a good substitute for glycerine in making rollers. I made a set of rollers re- cently, using equal weights of white glue and late fall honey—hardly fit for table use—aud the result was very satisfactory ; in fact they are the best rollers that I have made for years. The honey is worth probably 6 or 8 cents a pound, and glycerine costs 30 or 40 cents per lb. (Jueeii-Excliiders.—Dr. G. L. Tinker, New Philadelphia,o+ O., writes : On page 101, and in the third col- umn of my article I am made to say that " 1 also advise the use of queen- excluders on all colonies," etc. Upon all new colonies or swarms I certainly do, where few brood-combs are al- lowed ; but upon colonies having ten or more brood-frames they are not at all necessary; yet if they were so used, it is certain that they are no hindrance to the work of the bees in supers. Destroying Ants.—Wm. McKenzie, Eden, Out., requests thus : I would like some remedy for de- stroying ants. In the Weekly Bee JouKNAi. for 1884, I read of one bee- keeper who poisoned them, but he did not state what kind of poison he used, nor how he prepared it. [Sprinkle salt wherever the ants are found, and they will soon cease to be troublesome.-Ed.] Bee-Hire Factory Burned.—Paul L. Viallon, Bayou Goula, JLa., on March 2, 1885, writes as follows : After my pleasant meeting with the many bee-keepers in New Orleans, I retiu’ned home on Saturday morning, and the same night at 11 p. m. my bee hive factory burned down. It was a complete loss, amounting to over $3,000, as I had no insurance on it. I will rebuild at once and put in new machinery, but it will be three weeks before I can fill any orders. Tin Rests for Frames.—A subscriber makes the following request: On page 102, Mr. G. M. Alves de- scribes a T-shaped tin rest for his re- versible frame. I have found great difficulty in trying to get atsometliing speedy and simple with which to make them. If Mr. A. or any other correspondent of the Bek Journal will kindly suggest some plan,through, the columns of the liEE Jouknal, I will consider it a very great favor. Severe Winter for Bees.—Thos. (iorsuch, (50—70), tiorsuch,© Pa., on Feb. 27, 1885, writes thus : I have read the different opinions and remedies for the bee-diarrhea, yet I have not been able to discover the real cause or cure. I am of the opinion that it is with the bees as with poultry—mixing up different races makes tliem more susceptible to disease. This has been a severe win- ter for bees, yet mine are wintering well. They had a good flight on Feb. 25, and out of 70 colonies only 2 have died. I prepared one colony as re- quested by Mr. W. F. Clarke, in order to give his theory a trial, and so far it is ahead as regards quietness, cleanli- ness and loss of bees, the only trouble being that the bees would get down into the " hopper" and i^et lost; but I remedied this by putting a wire- screen on a slide on the lower end. I winter my bees on the summer stands, which I much prefer to cellar winter- ing.
