There aren’t many things more beautiful or captivating than a sunrise or sunset.
What makes us stop and stare in awe or take photos?
Whether they contain shades of yellow, red, orange or the bluest of blues
There is just something about sunsets and sunrises
Ever look out at mountains and catch your breath?
Purple mountain majesties indeed
Clear blue water and white sandy beaches
The color of a nation’s flag
Color is all around us
It can’t be avoided
Why should I try to deny it
I see color all around me
You see it too
Tell me this one thing
How do some not see the color of skin?
When I read or hear some one say, “I don’t see color” I wonder how that’s possible
I’m officially giving you permission to see skin color
But just like the colors in a rainbow, none are better, more qualified, more dangerous, less able, more believable, less captivating or more deserving of being anything other than a color in a rainbow
One color cannot create or sustain the rainbow alone
When each color stands alone it is monochrome
Still just as beautiful and captivating
But like a sunrise or sunset the beauty lies within the aray of colors not just one
It’s okay to embrace the colors around us
It’s okay to see the colors of our skin
The hue of our skin doesn’t make us lesser women or men
