Our conversation deepened and we began to dive deeper into the conversation.
It’s about Trust.
My friends heard me. Why? We trusted one another enough to be, real. My female friend who I’ve known for several years asked questions to gain understanding about Racial Appropriation and why people are upset about it. My new friend dove in with challenges to my points which opened my eyes to his perspective and deepened understanding.
I know that when we do look beyond superficial external differences we find more connection. Sometimes the person you least expect to be your ally…is…your ally.
