Embrace who you are, love it

While my son was in elementary school, I asked what race dose he tells his schoolmates he was. He quickly responded, “White”. When I asked why, he said that his skin color wasn’t brown or black. As he grew older he learned about both his Spanish and African American heritage. Now in 8th grade when you asked his race he will quickly tell you, he is “Blackican”. He may not be politically correct in his newfound word, nevertheless his sincere effort to embrace his heritage instead of the color of his skin makes be a proud parent.
