  •  Thanks NL...great diary (9+ / 0-)

    This is a very real thing. I've been in an interracial marriage for 18+ years and while we went in eyes wide open, every day is a learning experience for my husband, and for me too but moreso for him, especially as he has experienced being the father of a bi-racial son.

    The things that he takes for granted without a second thought are different realities for his own son; his flesh and blood, and that's been the most enlightening to him. But now I'm getting off topic.

    Back to your points,this is spot on:

    Instead she said that what I have to do is consider it...fearlessly and honestly.

    All I ask is that when I as a black woman in America say there might me some racism there, it not be dismissed by white people out of hand. Unfortunately, we see some of that done here.

    Birthers and Deathers and Town Hallers...oh my! Where's a flying monkey when you need one?
