I had a conversation with a group of colleagues and we discussed what is taking place in our world today. No different than many of you are having, of course. We were discussing how to make life better for people of color.
We cannot ignore the many strides that have taken place in the African American Community, and there is still a long way to go. Unfortunately, if feels like we are a targeted race and it is difficult to understand why. Maybe they’re afraid, maybe we’re a reminder of past sins. I really don’t know the right answer, but feel we most do something.
The discussion surrounded changing the narrative and the optics. Changing how we are perceived by America, and not just white America. But does that began with how we view ourselves. There are many that are truly proud to be an African American, and would not have it any other way, and I am one of those people. But I am curious as to what is next for us. Our young men are in danger of being killed. Those with or without an education, and it just seems okay. I am sure you agree the atrocities that take place in our community would not be acceptable in other community.
So what do you do?
Do we lives our lives too separated from one another, if so how do we fix that?
Please respond and give me your ideas.
