On Sunday there was an article about paying it forward on the op-ed page. It was interesting and generosity and the brain. It was moderately interesting. But what got my attention was the graphic associated with the article.
I’m seeing children kissing and holding hands. And they are brown! It’s a graphic with people of color when the article is not about people of color. I do not claim to be colorblind. I’m not. I work to be an ally of people of color, but that’s their call, not mine. This did make me smile.
