Something I Heard….

For several years I haven’t heard the  word: “Minority” bandied about as much as I have during this election deason. As a woman of colour, I became comfortable in not referring to myself or to any other person of color as a minority

Oddly, through over the past several onth the word: :Minority” had been more visible and audible in the news.

Whereas reporters would once refer the \African American and Hispanic” community, now I hear ‘Minority’ used in its stead.


I feel as emotionally drained, as the feeling I have after watching  a film by Danish director Lars Von trier.

Empty, Hollow and Betrayed  are the words that best describe the way that I feel.

Where once I was an uplifter, a spirit soaring.

Now  I find myself fending off the word: “Minority.”
