In just a few short days since launching this blog, I feel absolutely whole again, as if I’ve found what I’m passionate about and can begin creating a community that shares, inspires and grows together. Starting this blog has been life changing and meeting creative minds and supportive friends such as Joanne Stevenson above is only the beginning.
Attacked this week was Hollywood actor Taye Diggs over his son, Walker (6) whom he shares with his former wife Idina Menzel. Menzel is caucasian and so it follows their son is biracial. But Diggs had the audacity to say he is mixed.
Those words were uttered by my oldest daughter followed by floods of tears on her way home from school. “Why can’t I have a ‘flat’ bum Mama?”
I can’t tell you how much the pain I felt in that moment. My daughter is four years old.
