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.
