  • Understand what White Privilige is, accept that you have it, and then use it to help non-white people.
  • take part in the #DoTheWork 30 day course (it’s free) by Rachel Elizabeth Cargle.
  • listen to the lived experiences of your non-white friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances, social media presences. don’t argue with them, listen and learn.
  • understand that if you are not talking about the injustice here, or bringing it up in conversation, or engaging with it, you are contributing to the oppression. deal with that how you will.
  • search out and sign your name to as many petitions as you can.
  • if you see police engaging in violent or aggressive acts agains Black or non-white people, document it from a safe distance, make it obvious, and do not delete the footage. you have the right.
  • call out racism every time you see it. it’s exhausting, because once you notice it, it’s everywhere. ALL. OF. THE. TIME. it’ll be friends, family, colleagues, bosses, partners, and more. take your time, be patient and don’t let up.
