I was talking to a friend about how glad I am that a black man is one of our leading Presidential candidates. Not necessarily because I believe in Obama’s platform but because it’s forcing us as a nation to deal with our bigotry that is still so alive and well. My friend told me that he was working alongside of another man who asked him if he thought our country was ready for a “colored” President . . .
Meanwhile, I’m waiting for a little black boy to be born on Good Friday. A little black boy who may very well become my son.
Someone very close to my family offered to take my daughter Tabitha to raise–so that she wouldn’t be damaged by having a black brother. Damaged by having a black brother . . .
Alive and well. Bigotry. It’s still so alive and well.
Not in my house.
