Black & White & Gray

I want to tell her that loving people no matter where they are in life, is what she is ‪‎called‬ to do and that ‪serving‬ her neighbor is the highest calling in response to serving God. I want to tell her that her ‪‎smile‬ is the entryway to bringing ‪light‬ to a ‪dark‬ world. I want to tell her that her primary‪ identity‬ is in ‪Christ‬ and that informs her being a strong ‪AfroLatina‬ (or as she says it: “blackominican”). No one can take that away from her. I want to tell her that there is nothing wrong with her Mommy being ‪‎Dominican‬ and her Daddy being ‪Black‬ and that no matter what, #love does transcend ‪‎conflict‬ and ‪‎historical‬‪#‎cultural‬ ‪#‎tensions‬
