Back in college I learned so many things that had to do with my race. The hows and whys Africans were brought here unwillingly and the such. I became very angry…acted out of that in many ways. As I aged, that mindset tempered, especially holding fast to my faith, I knew that those cleansed by the Blood of Christ Jesus were family, no matter color, gender or creed. I understand we have a black President and I am still in awe, but just as things have changed…I find things have stayed the same. Racism is one of them. When I saw this cartoon I had to laugh because it was funny…in a cartoon kind of way. But I had to think, why was it funny? Conclusion, because it’s still real. This six panel cartoon has summed up many people’s way of thinking…on both sides. You may differ, you may not…but the fact remains, we still have a long way to go.

until then…
