I learned a lot this year. I came to understand what it meant for racism to be “systemic.” I open my mind to others’ thoughts and opinions and realities every day. I listen. I read everything from Audre Lorde’s writing to Megyn Kelly’s memoir. I try to understand where everyone is coming from. I spend every day trying to educate myself on racism, #BlackLivesMatter, immigration, abortion, government, healthcare, climate change, Islamophobia, crimes against women and LGBTQ. I vowed to myself that I would NEVER fall into the trap of white feminism. I am not like you, Taylor Swift or Amy Schumer. I will not stay silent.
I’m Turning 25 Tomorrow.
