Complacency, neutrality, & silence in the face of injustice means more than consenting to injustice—it is actively choosing the side of the oppressor. Let’s lift our voices. Let’s talk with our own communities, in rage and compassion. Let’s center what needs to be centered, and not what has been centered throughout history. Let us demand justice and systemic change. #nojusticenopeace #blacklivesmatter
I want to direct people to this post by my friend Jenny of the She Loves Dresses blog. She highlights a way for people—especially privileged people, non-black people—to show solidarity: economic support. Please visit her links to the donation pages of grassroots activists and organizations and consider helping make a real change in the world.
