He can't scratch the black off

I've learned to recognize and navigate white supremacist attitudes (even among Christians). I've learned to trust & build solid relationships with many whites who I consider fam. It's not an easy thing to navigate, and I am prepared to deal with it until the Lord comes. Now I'm trusting God's Grace to help my son navigate it as I walk and process with him after hearing classmates say, "Hey Aslan, you gotta scratch the black off" or "let's start a Kool Kids Klub and call it the KKK"!

Grateful that the school administration dealt with it quickly. Teaching him to hope and strive for a better world despite the foolishness.

My name is Gerald, and this is why I'm scared.
