This is my nephew, Miles.
Take a good, hard look at him.
What do you see?
He’s athletic, sure.
And a handsome lil’ devil, too.
And he likes to talk.
What you should also know is that Miles is a smart one.
And when he grows up and figures out how to use his powers for good, he’s going to change the world, for sure.
I can feel it.
Anyone who spends a half second around him can.
And he’s only 10.
More sooner than later, though, Miles, who is as tall enough to look his mama in the eye, is going to start looking less like a little boy, more like a little man.
He’ll still be athletic.
He’ll still be talkative.
He’ll still be the smart one.
He’ll still grow up to change the world.
But will everyone else see what I see in this beautiful black boy then?
