We live in a bubble. That's not necessarily a good thing. For example, my husband and I live on a quiet cul-de-sac across from Lakewood Country Club's 9th hole fairway. Our daily comings and goings put us in direct observation of the golfers on the course, and when we first moved into this house a year ago we started asking ourselves: When do you think we will see a minority playing golf?
It's been one year and we've only seen white people playing golf. We have both friends and neighbors that are members of the club and they claim to have minority members.
But we haven't seen them playing golf.
Sometimes I worry about raising our children in an environment that's too full of white people and white culture - will that set them up for success in this great big world of ours?
Am I going to spend the next two decades of my life worrying about raising well rounded, intelligent, and caring children?!
