So. Much. Truth.
Us white folk love to say we care.
We tweet and retweet. We make it part of our platform. A few even educate ourselves. And less than a handful stand up when someone says or does something racist in front of them.
But we live a life of NIMBY.
Out of sight. Out of mind.
Or. Overwatched to the point of meaningless and out of mind.
We also don’t want to risk what “we have”
Thank you. I wish there was more I could say in support or to acknowledge your words.
I’m going to ask to volunteer with BLM today. If they won’t have me, I will find somewhere else where I can start doing this work. You are right. We need that virus.
