I’m not saying I should demand automatic power but is it okay with you if I’m okay? It’s not like I asked to be born with a certain pigment and I don’t want to be insensitive but why should I be made to feel guilty by the way I look? Yes, I’m sure many of my ancestors didn’t live up to the standards of today but I wonder how many of us live up to the standards of the future? It’s also true that many who share my skin tone participated in the heinous crime of slavery yet also built the mechanism for us all to be free. In their time my ancestors achieved greatness on their battlefields of life which took incredible courage and endurance without any therapist or coach’s pushing them along the way. In the end, we all should be proud in some way of where we came from especially when we ourselves never took the journey. So, yes white is definitely ok.
