At The Table

The only people who will ever be at the table are those who can afford to be there.

The only people at professional sporting events are those who can afford to be there.

The only people who can attend quality schools are those who can afford to be there.

The only people who can attend community meetings are those that can afford [the time] to be there.

The only people who can launch successful companies are those that can afford to take on that debt and risk.

The only people who can lobby and protest for their rights are the ones that can afford to take time off from work.

The only people that live in your “nice” neighborhood are those who can afford to pay the rent or mortgage.

The only people who can afford to ‘get over it’ are those who are not stuck beneath it.

If you aren’t actively working to eliminate the causes of other people’s​ oppression, you are actively enforcing them.

There is no middle ground.
