LOL Dammy, "I guess you could say I’m a little bit like rainbow sherbet. I wonder if rainbow sherbet goes good with Oreos?" You tell'em.

Though we physically different, I believe we are one body in Christ. I, therefore, don't see or pay attention to color. I don't really care about what people think or say about me because of my color or race. Sometimes our evironment, like where we grew up, has some effect on how we relate to racial issues. It should not be what people think of us but rather our identity in Christ.

Thank you for your honesty in this article. I truly enjoyed it and some of the things mentioned reminded me of my own life. My Mother also taught us to articulate our words, to use proper grammar, and etiquette. In regards to my Father he seemed to have a dictionary on him at all times growing up. I say that because whenever we didn't know what a word meant or said it wrong, he would pull out a dictionary and tell us to look it up. It's funny because when my family comes together, it seems that at the dinner table that same dictionary always comes out.
I grew up in a house where we were taught to appreciate others but also take pride in our ethnicity and how God made us. I'm not sure how many times my Mom would tell me, "Black is Beautiful" to encourage me to be confident in my skin.
Thanks for the post. Truly a delight.
