For some families, talking about race is a regular part of daily life and family discussions growing up. As a matter of survival, it’s never been an option not to. For others, it can be challenging to talk about it, or to know how to, and thus is often avoided or considered taboo. Many individuals experienced a period in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, where race was not talked about explicitly, and in fact, the notion of “colorblindness” was touted as a way to not discriminate against others. It is no surprise then that without this practice and knowledge for how to talk about and acknowledge racism, many individuals are now in positions as parents or caring for youth and not knowing how to engage in that conversation.
