One thought on “Different as Night and Day: Embracing Black Individuality

    I think you are absolutely correct about how people combine all people of color into a group that defines them as the same. White people don’t as a general rule do this to ourselves. I’ve seen it among the attempts to stereotype white women as “poor drivers” or “inferior”, and I am pleased to say these areas are becoming awareness points. American History compiles a massive sweep of the hand to corral the Black Americans. I think of it this way. White people attempt to control and beat down everything they perceive as threatening. Just give a black man or woman a strong minded level chance to be heard, really heard and you’ll find thousands of haters trying to minimalize that voice. I contend the strength of the Black History (one of the strengths) is that we have a people who are here. The resilience, the rich spiritual hymns, the fabric of great suffering all lends itself to a Higher Power. One that bends low to help the oppressed and remove the sting of evil.
