While we have some good news to share about Stylaquin, my heart and soul are with the protesters who are changing our world for the better. My friend and neighbor, Ray Rickman, shared a list of anti-racist resources for non-black people. (I’m very grateful he reached out.) So I’m sharing that instead.
NB: Discomfort in engaging anti-racist action is expected. Lean into it. Discomfort is a part of growth. Interrogate the “why” behind your discomfort by talking about it with your non-Black family and friends. (Racism is not a Black problem, it’s not their responsibility to “fix” or educate white people.)
Racism is learned. Talk with your children and family about racism in America and the ways they can fight it.
Anti-racism is a continuous process. You are never done with your education and action and you must actively engage anti-racism in your everyday life.
