I always thought that I was not a racist, at all. But the truth is even if you think you are not , you might be.
In my case, I have two daughters that only date African Americans, they have children by them. And it somewhat bothers me. I love my grandchildren, they are the sweetest, but I worry about how others will perceive them in life. Will it be harder for them growing up. Recently on one of the kids birth certificate's, my daughter listed, my granddaughter as a bi-racial child. When the certificate came in, it said she was black.
Now why is that ? She is just as white as black yet why are they all listed this way ?
I don't know if it should be a whole new race, that they should be called or what. I resent it, then I have to examine myself, do I resent it because they think the black is over the white ? And I resent that. I was not raised as a racist, but its around us everywhere we go.
I think that you need to really think about it. Realize that a color, is just that. It doesn't describe a person, who has the same problems, in life, we all think alike in some areas, we all have red blood, so we need to see beyond color.
We need to think before we speak in some cases to make sure we are being fair and not seeing a color and condemning a whole race, because of it. For me, that means a lot of prayer, and seeing beyond, that color.
