My Sunday Best, Volume 67: Let's Talk About Racism

We live in Virginia, not far from Charlottesville. If you don't live under a rock, you've probably heard about what went down there yesterday. If you haven't heard, I found this to be a helpful summary.

Here's my honesty: I grew up with parents who worked really hard to raise us to be color-blind. Racism was thought to be a thing of the past. Once we hit the Civil Rights Movement in our history studies, it was as though everything was fixed, all minds enlightened, all persons equal. I read that Babysitter's Club book where Jessi's family moved to Connecticut and encountered racism and thought, "Wait, seriously? That doesn't happen anymore. This is ridiculous and unrealistic." In my mind, there was no racism in the world anymore.

It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized that wasn't actually the case.

Not one picture in focus this week, as usual...
