Three things that made me happy yesterday!
I like when she tells me about how different things were when she was my age and she likes learning about things that are new. Sometimes the changes we talk about show that things have gotten worse in the world and sometimes that things have gotten better. Lots of people my great grandma's age still think about things the old way. I'm happy that my grandma is way too smart for that. She knows you can't tell what a person is like because of their race and that one race is no better or worse than another. She loves me for me!
Sometimes I tell her about what we are doing at Project RACE. She is a member of our new division Project RACE Grandparents! Yesterday I got to tell her some good news. I was just nominated for a scholarship from a big national department store. That's good news, but it gets better! On the nomination form they had a multiracial option under racial categories. I LOVE when that happens. It feels good to have an option that actually fits me! I like to know that people (besides my family) think about kids like me!
My Great Grandmother Tucker Dear, a Black Cherry Smoothie and Multiracial on a scholarship form... Yesterday was a great day!
