As a white mom to a white son I can empathize what it is like to be raising a black son in America but there is no way that I can ever truly know how it feels. That is why I jumped at the chance when one of our brand reps asked to write a guest piece on the topic. I had tears in my eyes when I was reading. She had tears while she was writing. It's a moving piece that will help to give a little perspective to life as a parent of a black child in America in 2016.
