Dear White Friends...

Dear White Friends & Family, when I talk about my struggles and you agree, tell me you support me. I don't need explanations, your opinions or apologies, or for you to discount what I am saying. I need you to vocalise your agreement with me and join me in the condemnation of the very racist white system we all live in. I need you to ask questions as well as read up yourselves, and when a Person of Colour is telling you something affects them, listen. I need you to share the posts I share to show your solidarity. I need you to recognise and accept that you have a privilege over me, and yes it's not your fault, but it definitely is real, exists, and places you in a safer place than me. We can't change what the system as implemented so far, but we, and especially you, as those who benefit from the system, can join in with changing how it moves forward. Safe x
