Donovan has a best buddy at school,
they get along so well.
From day one
almost every story from school includes Tate.
I want to share with you some of their recent conversations,
and to set the tone -
Tate's skin color is white.
Donovan told me that someone else at school
gets him confused with Tate.
I asked him why he thought this person got them
"I don't know...
Tate has a fauxhawk
and I don't."
I just love that the hairstyle is the main difference Donovan
sees between him and his buddy.
When I shared this with Tate's mom,
she told me that Tate told her a few weeks ago,
he and Donovan were laying in the sun at recess,
trying to get a tan.
Tate's mom said,
"Why is Donovan trying to get a tan?
He already has brown skin."
We adults can learn a lot from these
