Today, and every day, we are calling on ALL of our white American friends, family, and internet strangers:
It is time that we outwardly condemn white supremacy and acknowledge that this country was founded on the roots of racism and white supremacy.
It is not enough to remain silent anymore.
We cannot afford to remain silent anymore.
White people: It is OUR job to call out racism, and to call out white supremacy. It is unfair of us to expect the Black community to address and fix the rampant racism in this country.
We as white people must be at the frontline equally fighting and confronting these issues that are deeply rooted in America. And we are truly shocked and disappointed that after four years of chaos, lies, violence, and hate, that we still see plenty of white people turn the other way.
And THAT is white privilege, being able to turn away because these things don’t affect you.
