I wonder now at how I possibly have contributed to the racial divide in this country because I chose to take the easiest safest route, that is to say opt of dating someone different just to afford me and the bigots a little tranquility. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting the most chaming man in a really long time. He is attractive, educated, gets my brand of sarcastic humor and most of all he loves the Lord. He is NOT African-American! What would the rest of the world have to say I wonder given the current racial climate? I believe now that choosing not to date someone because they are different helps to keep racial divisiveness alive. I’m not at all sure of what meeting this person means for my life. If he ever asked me out I'd be more inclined now to say "YES". I wish to break the racial stronghold that has been imposed on me through fear right now. I give myself freedom to freely love whomever I want.
If our voices remain inaudible, the silence echoes louder than any bigot’s jeers and taunts ever could. I hereby decree that I am free to LOVE and you are too!
