For parents of teens across the country, a first driving lesson is a right of passage, often inspiring a mixture of pride and trepidation.

For Black Canadians like Danardo Jones and his son Deshaun, that trepidation assumes an added dimension, informed by the reality of systemic racism.

How does a parent prepare their maturing child for the specific scrutiny that comes with navigating the world while Black?

As a lawyer, Danardo is intimately familiar with the legal protections that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms provides, notionally, to all Canadians. But as a Black man, Danardo knows all too well that those protections can count for little when the system is rigged against you.
