Too Dark To Be White, Too Light To Be Black
July 23, 2019
Hosted by Karla D. Walker
Some of the leaders of our country continue to incite negative cultural biases that many thought was going away. It seems we have gone backwards in history to a time where it felt unsafe to be a person of color. “Mommy are you white?” This is a question I got from my daughter when she was little because her classmates were teasing her about having a “white” mommy. Where did they learn this? Why should it matter if your mommy is black or white? Why is this still an issue today? This show explores and discusses the issue of race and “color”. Why is it important? Why does this issue bring out the ugliest side of our nature? What is driving, fueling the hate? Why are people bleaching their skin to become lighter? Why does there seem to be so much disdain for dark skinned women? What is white privilege? How can we move beyond this to a place of mutual understanding, respect, and appreciation?

Karla D. Walker listens with compassion, without judgement, speaks directly with heart, and helps people work through the simplest to most difficult challenges. She was raised by her great aunts to believe there was nothing she couldn’t do. So, when people told her no, that fueled her spirit to ask, why not and then prove them wrong. That belief allowed her to gain a wide range of experiences that she has drawn on all her life. Coupled with a strong desire to learn and a fearlessness to try something different or new, her preparation afforded her many opportunities. But what kept calling her was a passion to work with people to help them become their best selves. Her common sense, intuition, personal life experiences and internal compass have guided, directed, saved her and put her on this path.
