Dear White People, People of Color are Just People

Just Friends

People can be your friends,

if they look different than you do

if they walk differently than you do

if they speak a language you don’t

if they wear clothes you don’t expect

if they have toys you thought they wouldn’t

if their family has different types of members than yours

if their God is different

if their religious beliefs are not what you believe

if their home is bigger, smaller, or nonexistant

People don’t have to be your twin to be “safe”.

Your neighborhood is home to people of all sizes , shapes, colors and beliefs.

Look them in their eyes and say

“Hello”

and maybe buy them coffee.
