Black people don’t travel.
|See any POC?Me neither.|
It’s something that I’ve noticed since my childhood.
But being at the airport in the last few days reinforced that idea. I am on a plane with at least 100 people and I only see about 3 black folks. There are other people of color like Indians and a few Asians but there aren’t any black people.
One of the reasons why I am always so eager to go somewhere is because in my childhood, I hardly did any traveling.
Of course, it’s hard to travel when there’s “no money”, but I wonder, do folks even try to travel? Or do they just assume that because they aren’t wealthy that it isn’t an option? I’ve seen that happen so many times. Before the blessings & opportunity comes in, people’s negative feelings block the blessings. Trust me; I know what it’s like to grow up with the bare minimum.
But as an adult who isn’t rich but definitely blessed, I know how with the right frame of mind, you can travel anywhere.
