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.
