A BRIEF HISTORY
Being a black man, who had issues about race and self-identity from a young age, I’ve always wanted to assimilate, because I saw all of the things that the white race created and gave to the rest of the world.
Unfortunately my family was very pro-black, and I could see the racism that they had, and also preached to us kids. They made me so confused and angry inside that I committed a crime out of a lack of self-control, and went to prison for 10 years.
There’s a long story behind that, and I have no problem talking about it. I just wanted to fast forward to when I got out, and had my son. I didn’t know how to be a good father or husband, so my wife divorced me and found a white man to be with, where they have a child of their own, plus my son.
I had to listen to, and deal with black men telling me, how could I let a white man raise my son, how I’m supporting white supremacy, and should go to court and fight.
When I read your words “God says black parents and leaders need to teach their black children sensitivity toward whites. Prejudice and discrimination are rampant in the black community”, that moved me so much, and reaffirmed to me that children can have more than one father.
And no matter what color they are, as long as the child is getting love from that person, that’s all that matters.
I will always make sure my kids show sensitivity and respect to all white people, and I will make sure that if nothing else, they see the same from me.
