Rashan Charles, Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race


Melanin Mind & Soul is a lifestyle blog where you can follow a black woman on the journey to bouncing back from a rough time, by letting go of fear and do all the things on the ever growing to-do list.

    Another good read. The statement that pinched me a little was:

    “I felt like I was letting my black community down before I didn’t defend his ignorance and school him”

    I completely understand how you feel. The thing is, it is never too late to actually have a word with a colleague of yours. It would just be a matter of finding the right time and the right method of executing such conversation. Sometimes it is better to leave and then come back to such conversation (as you will be less disturbed).

    Anyway, your post reminded me of something. I have a white colleague at work who EVERYtime she is going on a date with him, she always refers to him the black electrician. I know for a fact, if he was a white man…she would call him by his name. Is it just me or is this off putting?
