Disillusion of Racism

Growing Up Color Blind

February Black History Month
Pin

I grew up under the illusion that racism ended. Turbulent history going on during child­hood was veiled. Protests of black leaders and peaceful marches were not for family viewing. The only regular televi­sion show featuring a black actor during grade school was I Spy. The Bible teaches that God made from one man every nation of man. So I was brought up not to see color even though neighbor­hoods were segregated.
