We all grew up with the famous Disney twins Tia and Tamera.
Yesterday, I watched an episode of the twins reality show in which they were discussing race. They were both disgusted at the thought of it. Coming from a biracial background, the two women said they had both dealt with a lot of silly questions growing up. One of the fair skinned twins even mentioned she was once asked why she didn't look like her mother, a black woman.
Later on in the episode, a pregnant Tamera went out to dinner with her caucasian husband and asked him how they should approach the discussion of race with their child. He said, "Our children will get the best of both worlds."
I couldn't have stated it any better. So in celebrating Black History Month, I believe we should acknowledge both worlds or rather all worlds involved. It is all of our history. The good and the bad have made what is best for today.
The things I write about are the love of my life and the life of my love!
