The Race Bubble

Attending an HBCU felt like living in a bubble. The bubble provided the ability to develop during a period of life that has so many other challenges that at least racism is not prevalent in day-to-day living experiences. How many other races can say they have a cluster of schools just for their young adults to come together to receive a higher education?

I hate to burst your bubble but students at HBCU’s still find way to segregate themselves. There are the haves and the have-nots, the sorors and the athletes, the bookworms and the party animals. Nevertheless, there still exists a mutual sense of equality because we’re all African-American (of some percentage). Nevertheless, the environment allows students the time to develop the inner fortitude to help deal with outside pressures like racism.

In a similar way, the church is the bubble for people who have decided to commit their lives to following God. While everybody is very different, there still exists a mutual sense of fellowship because they’re all God’s children. The church instills the inner fortitude people need to be able to withstand the pressures of life.

We can’t live in a bubble forever. We eventually graduate from school and the church service ends, and we have to face the outside world. Make sure you have what you need to weather the storms of life.

And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:5
