This black and white photo accurately represents my birth mother and my mom’s respective skin tones, but it is inaccurate in their worldviews. Even though they’ve only just begun their friendship, it’s neat to know that they’ve shared their accepting attitude for all people regardless of skin color.
“The quickest cure for racism would be to have everyone in the
country adopt a child of another race. No matter what your beliefs,
when you hold a four-day-old infant, love him, and care for
him, you don’t see skin color, you see a little person that is very
much in need of your love.”
