Take a few minutes and think of your role models. When I do so, I notice how difficult it is for me to find role models within the black community.
Role models within the black community should mean so much more than celebrities in the entertainment or athletic fields. Singers, rappers, and basketball players shouldn’t be our only idols.
Yes, there are a select few black positive role models who are held to a higher standard; however, they are typically not given their deserved credit or recognition.
Of course, the Obamas came to my mind.
Who do you think of? Did you run into the challenge I did of finding someone with the same background as you?
