Connect for the Cause

As humans, we are homogeneous creatures. We are naturally drawn towards and prefer to be with other people who are like us. I’m Black. I like being around Black people. Quite frankly, it feels safer. But just because it’s most comfortable does not mean it is right to live my life trying to avoid people who aren’t like me. We have to move ourselves out of what is comfortable in order to have any meaningful relational development with people who aren’t just like us.
