Now is not the time for inaction. For many years, we have watched injustices against minorities and rising police brutality against POC and we can’t just not do anything and call ourselves ‘not racist’. That’s not enough anymore.
Just because you aren’t contributing towards the problem, it doesn’t mean you are fighting against it. Raise awareness. Don’t’ let ‘passive’ racist comments fly by, especially if they’re from friends or colleagues. Don’t perpetuate these seemingly innocent comments that make it seem like one race is better than another, that the colour of someone’s skin dictates how they act as a person. That is the definition of Racism.
By not doing anything, you are 100% taking a stand with Racist people. If you want to show you’re for equality, now is the time to spread awareness.
TIP: if you want to learn more about the subject and educate yourself, please read How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. It’s incredible educational and well-written, available on Amazon as a physical or Kindle book.
