Are You A Race Reacher

Are you a race reacher? The moment a person of another race does something that offends you do you immediately accuse them of being racist? Or do you look to make things about race or racism when it’s really not? If you do you may be a race reacher. 

I heard of the term “race reacher”from radio host and tv personality Charlamagne the God. He used it after people tried to accuse Ellen of being racist after she posted a picture of her riding Usain Bolt on social media. He described race reachers as people who look to make everything a racial issue or quick to accuse someone of being racist.–cY0

It’s one thing to be woke and understand that yes it is racial injustices, discrimination, and racism around you. However, that doesn’t mean we have to add to the issue by trying to make things that have nothing to do race an racial issue.  

The next time someone or something comes up that makes you want to pull the race card take a moment and ask yourself this question:

If someone of my own race did or say that would I be as offended? 

If the answer is no, you may be race reaching. 

Peace and love
