Unitarian Universalism is Hella White

Thank you, Beth, for writing this. I, too, am “mixed”. And know exactly what you mean about not being “white” or “Hispanic”. When I left Northern New Mexico and went to California to college in the early sixties, I was told, “If you must be a minority, be Black.” And I thought “It’s a little late for that.” Over the decades, I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin; especially as I have watched in wonder at those who are not comfortable with my skin. I am grateful for those who have listened to me and profoundly sorry for those who have chosen not to. They have missed something — me! Yes, getting older does have some good features!

I am grateful that we are having this discussion. Finally!
