Momaha editor Josie Loza wrote a blog that appeared on The Huffington Post today.
In “What Color Am I?”, Josie talks to her daughter Alejandra about race.
“Mom,” she said.
Her big brown eyes were wider than normal. I knew something serious (as serious as a then-3-year-old can get) was on her mind.
“What color am I?” she asked.
I sat in silence for a moment. I didn’t know how to answer. I knew she would eventually ask me that question. But I never prepared an answer.
