To the People Who Look Like Me,

Silence is consent. Silence is permission. Silence is encouragement.

Staying silent because we can isn’t neutrality. It’s being part of the oppression.

Let’s raise BI+/POC voices up and stand with our fellow citizens. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” — the King

“Unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban.” — George Orwell

The violences against BIPOC has prompted me to document my intrinsic and learned bigotry and how I am attempting to combat it. The only way to truly shift the culture is to start with our own minds. "Not being a racist" is not enough. We must learn the history of injustice from which we benefit and pay homage to those our people have wronged.
