Interesting, because my own grandchildren are mixed. Three are mixed with black, but two of them are mixed with, I’m assuming, African Black and one is mixed with Island Black. One is mixed with the Hispanic race and four of them are mixed with all kinds of other countries, German, Irish, Welsh, English and who know with what else. Also, all of them are also mixed with Choctaw Indian. It doesn’t matter to these children that some have dark skin and some have white skin and one even had pink hair.
The sad thing is that I have to fear for my grandsons who are black – not white – because there are people out there who automatically feel they are superior to them and could end up shooting them.
If you are white and say you don’t care about skin color, do you cross the street if a black man is walking toward you, just on case he might try to rob you. Do you know what it is like to fear for your family knowing a cop will most likely not be charged with murder for killing your children. As long as we have people who think their skin color gives them special privileges it will take a long time to raise enough children a better way to let those thoughts die out.
