On behalf of TDB, I stand in solidarity with the fight against injustice, systemic racism, police brutality, white supremacy and the oppression of the Black community. Black Lives Matter.
As a white immigrant who came to the US three years ago from a country that’s predominantly white, I acknowledge my privilege. I have A LOT of work to do. A lot of learning and unlearning. Posting a hashtag and reposting the photos is not enough. Being non-racist is not enough. We must be anti-racist every single day. We must educate ourselves. We must listen, speak out, donate and we must get involved. It’s not supposed to be comfortable and it’s the only way we can make a change.
And to all the people outside of the US saying this is just an “American” problem. It is not. Racism is everywhere and we all need to get to work. We all need to be better, we all need to listen and we all need to learn.
