What began out as a debate between two younger brothers about in the event that they have been brown or black changed into a lesson on race.
Theo and Uria requested their dad, Glen Henry, whether or not they have been black or brown. Henry stepped in to deliver some explanation to the dialog.
“The color of your skin is brown,” Henry, whose YouTube channel Beleaf in Fatherhood is an Outspeak Partner, advised the lads in a video posted in July. “But we, our race, we are black people.”
After a pant, Theo requested, “So why are we black people?”
Henry then displays Theo and Uria a photograph of them with their pals, all with various sunglasses of pores and skin, and explains what melanin is.
“When you see other black people … he’s a black person, too,” the dad defined. “We are black people, but our skin is brown.”
When Theo discussed considered one of his white pals, Henry advised the lads: “Just because our skin is different, doesn’t mean we are different people; we just have different color skin.”
“No matter what color the skin is, you can still be friends with everybody. We are all friends,” Henry mentioned. “Everybody’s equal.”
