I am privileged because I am white.
I feel it is not enough for me to just say that Black Lives Matter because that should go without saying. Weather black or white we are all part of the black community as we should all call out the wrong doings and horrific acts of physical violence and murder other privileged white people commit towards our black members of the community.
Saying black lives matter doesn’t make you anti- Racist it only confirms you don’t agree with racism to be anti racist we must use our white privilege to create change and call out acts of racism when we see it as well as part take in anti racism protests, provide support where we can and most importantly EDUCATE ourselves and others around us on racism and white privilege.
Having white privilege doesn’t mean you’re a middle aged middle class white man it simply means you are not pre judged or discriminated against due to the colour of your skin.
It is not enough to say that we need change.
WE MUST BE THE CHANGE
RIP George Floyd
