African Americans inherited a “nigger” culture. The literature posits that African American culture was founded, formed, and shaped in America where European Americans instilled within African Americans the belief, albeit erroneous, that those of African descent were inferior humans, especially, intellectually (see Conrad, 1966; Davis, 2005; Higginbotham, 1996). Is it no wonder that African American children are, academically, the poorest performing children in America?
