I am pregnant with a mixed child... it was not my plan, but may be it was Gods plan. It's no secret that in lieu of recent events (Mr. Floyds death), it has sparked an outrage across the US. I do not understand hate, but I know it exists. With all this hate going on in the world right now, I am terrified for my unborn son who will be viewed as "black", no matter which way you look at it. I know he will be judged, hated, and disliked, simply based on the "color of his skin". This is something many people live and experience day in and day out- it's all new to me. How do I raise a black son, in a world I struggle to understand myself? How do I raise a black son as a white female. How do I teach my son how to live as a black man, when I myself know nothing about the reality he will face? I know God will wrap his arms around us and protect us, but I am so scared of the trials and tribulations he may face simply based on the color of his skin, his fathers skin, and then us as a unit. I can only hope that I am stronger for my son than I have been for myself.
