Racial Colorblindness from a Color Blind Man’s Eyes

My mom cried when I showed her a picture of the way I see colors. It is indeed a sad reality when I stop to think about it.

Here is my bone to pick with the idea of being racially colorblind: that reality is extremely unfortunate.

Why would you want to settle for only 25% of the beauty in the world? Why would you want to limit your experience of humanity and creation to just a quarter of what is possible?

A Prayer for Mending

Jesus, show us the way because we can’t see. We look through a glass dimly. Jesus, You are the way. Help us walk so close to You that we smell like You, that we look like You, that we become like You. Teach us Your ways so that our own ways die. Teach us Your Truth, so that it overpowers the tricky schemes of spite and bitterness. Your ways are above our ways, so we lay ours down. We say, “We don’t know what we’re doing. Help us.”
