‘My dad will not let me go to your sleepover because you’re black’: Girl receives note from friend
My daughter will be on the front line of the next generation that will most certainly be more colorful than the past. As color lines, and ethnicities, become less differentiated…MAYBE THEN…her generation will ACTUALLY be judged, loved and praised for the content of their personal characters…rather than the increasingly common color of their skin. I pray that my daughter and her progeny get to see today’s severely unfulfilled promise of a “Post-Racial” America become reality…because sadly, I’m beginning to think I never will. That being said…I will still continue the fight to prove myself wrong.~Daryl~
