Are you an African American? African American History

Are you an African American? By definition, an African American is a black American or an American who has African and especially black African ancestors.

In today’s times, depending on where you live, there are children who are unaware of what the term “African American” really means, and it’s seemed as confusing with the response, “I’m not African.”

Some children say “I’m not black. I’m brown.” It seems as if they definitely know the colors of a Crayola box. Is it because they are looking at the color of their skin or because they haven’t been taught who they are and where they come from?

These are subjects that we face today, where the education of it is much needed and should be offered through all of our mouths who know the answer. At the same time, we do not want our children to develop hate or separatism towards other cultures but instead, so they will know their own culture and be proud of the skin they are in. Take time to educate your child about what’s on top of their skin so they can have it in their heart.  

Red and yellow, black or white, we are precious in His sight.  Jesus loves the little children of the world.
