I was doing some research on gaslighting, when I came across the following in the Gaslighting article on Wikipedia:
Gaslighting can be seen as institutional and systematic. An article by Tuesda Roberts and D. Carter Andrews specifically focuses on African-American teachers, and attributes the severely low percentage of African-Americans in the teaching profession to "macro-level and micro-level laws and policies [that] have historically and contemporarily positioned the black educator as 'outsider' and as 'on the margins'", competent to teach Black students but not White students, a form of gaslighting reinforced by "the exodus of White educators from predominantly non-White schools".
Gaslighting as abuse of power and control goes far beyond relationships and into daily struggles. This type of societal gaslighting upon certain capabilities can have a serious effect on personal development. K.E. Portnow terms one form of self-doubt "developmental doubt", and says it is "linked to questions of identity formation in which epistemological complexity potentiated biographical, historical and thematic issues of self-doubt."
What kind of figures are we talking about? I mean what are the actual figures on black american representation as teachers, and what they ought to be given their representation as a whole in the population.
