This book examines the public education system of the city of Toronto with a qualitative and ethnographic lens. In the first few chapters, the author utilizes his own experiences as a Black-Somali-Canadian to critically examine the anti-black-racism that pervades the city of Toronto. Using various conceptual frameworks, this book contends that the public education system of Toronto reproduces the practice of anti-black racism by committing structural violence against black students. Then, it discloses the methods via which school employees are intimidated and enticed to comply with the structural violence, that they witness in their schools. Additionally, this text unveils and unpacks two peculiar paradoxes [the paradox of the ‘Condemned creeds’ and the paradox of ‘rebellion’] that safeguard and strengthen the practices of structural violence and anti-black racism. In the final chapters, the text explores the role of gender as it relates to school-based structural violence; and it discusses why practices such as anti-black racism and structural violence are currently treated as necessary and beneficial.

"I sing here a spell to reincarnate the spirits of black ghosts; the Wiilasha (Niggaz) and Gabdhaha (homegirls) who lived (and still live) futureless lives in the city of Toronto; the dhallinyarada (teenagers) who dug their graves in a city that killed them slowly while burying them alive."
