A Week Later

So, it's been a week since I issued the easy challenge. Did you do it, white folks? Did you pay really close attention to the world around you? Did you see how many people of color are actually in your world, on your screens, in your friends lists? Just how multicultural, multiethnic, multiracial, is your world? Were you ever the only white person? Were there ever more than two people of color? How did any of it make you feel? Make you think?

It's Black History Month, a good time to be thinking and being aware of issues like this, but not the only good time. Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue actually has black people on it. That we are celebrating that in 2014 is a appalling, but there you have it. 

For us, it was a week of awareness. For people of color, it's their lives. Even though the week is over, the awareness shouldn't be.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.
