BLACK LIVES MATTER. Nothing backwards about it ✊✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿⁣⁣

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE: I’m wondering where you’ve been since you posted your black square.... ⬛️⁣⁣

Truthfully, I care about what you do in REAL life and not on social media. I commend those of you who have been learning what it takes to be anti-racist and a true ally (publicly and privately). Are you willing to continue to sacrifice in order to stand up for what you know is right? 🤝⁣⁣

⁣⁣

If you really mean it, I hope you’ve been having those tough conversations with your family, friends, and even strangers. Making it an everyday conversation. And be prepared for lost friendships. 🗣⁣⁣

At this point, you cannot say you “don’t like to bring up politics” when we have matters of life and death on our hands. Having the privilege of not discussing human rights no longer exists. We are experiencing a collective human experience like never before. 🌐⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Our Black brothers and sisters are TIRED. Traumatized by new hashtags for people who get shot in the back 7 times with their kids in the car. Can you imagine? This on top of everything else going on in the world?🤯⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Keep 👏 speaking 👏 up. Even when you feel like it’s not getting anywhere. People’s opinions do evolve over time. Every single interaction is worth it. This is how the world changes. 🌍 ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Always up for a conversation 💭 if you need help/support with talking points for those tough convos. The right thing isn’t meant to be easy. If you need tangibles on how to be anti-racist, peep my post with the mural that says EQUITY. #EmpowerEveryone 💙
