Deeds and Words

whitesilence2

Athens, Georgia – As I write this, I am currently on the clock at my place of work. The events that have taken shape in the past few hours are jarring but to me not unexpected. Systematic racism is a disease that we could cure if we wanted to but elect not to. This work should never be soley left on the shoulders of those [primarily of color] who speak out, speak up and do the work. This takes us all – Yes, even good-hearted white liberals who lay back in the cut.

I am very sad and disheartened today but not crushed.

Move forward, people.
