The first thing many people do when they hear a tornado warning is they go outside.
Even though they know it’s a bad idea, they just don’t fully understand the threat.
They want to see it. Because seeing is believing.
The coronavirus is no different. We can’t see it. We may not know anyone personally who’s gotten it or we might know someone but they were fine. We don’t see dead bodies in the street. We may not have even heard the ambulances.
So we don’t believe it. The charts are just charts.
Racism is no different. If you’re white especially you don’t’ see it. Police officers are generally polite to you. No one follows you around a store. You don’t say overtly racist things and you have never burned a cross on someone’s lawn.
So you don’t believe you’re racist.
If you don’t’ see it you don’t believe it.
Except what the world needs is your ability to see beyond what you see.
And learn that what you can’t see can still be possible.
