March 10, 2011, I set out on this journey toward race-lessness and as the hymn writer says, “I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now.” The blog was first named The Daily Race. Working with each post to create sacred space for a life without race, I relied heavily on my conviction that there was life a part from and after race. I also believed strongly that the answer to the post- racial life had already been given in Scriptures and that it affirmed our God and our image as pre- racial and supra- racial.
Today, I stand courageously and proclaim the race-less gospel of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for each word, each step that has brought me here and now. I am walking in the light and freedom of Jesus Christ, thankful for the discomfort that race caused me so long ago as it lead me to this place of purpose and meaning.
Since 2011, I have shared more than 550 posts concerning race and the Christian faith. I didn’t start with an end in mind; so three years later, I am not sure what will constitute the end of my writing. But, I want to keep walking away from race and its progeny. I desire to put as much distance between me and the history of race as is possible. I want to see my authentic self: race-less and Christ- filled. What a gift that would be. Happy Anniversary to me!
