It’s Time to Talk

by Lisa M. Evans, MA, CDP
She is the author of “This Is My Brain on Emotion”

Remove the phrase I don’t see color
So we can truly see each other
And focus on what lies within
And not be distracted by melanin
Our hearts beat
Our blood flows
We celebrate highs
And experience lows
More similar than different
Divided over pigment
Racisms roots deeply planted in fear
How do we move away from here?
Understanding, respect and consideration
Is the only way to heal our nation
It’s time to have the conversation we’ve been avoiding for hundreds of years
It’s not going to be comfortable there will be anger, frustration and tears
But if we don’t come together nothing is going to get better
It’s time to talk
