White People, We Have to Do Better

Date

What an awful week this has been. To the Black folks in my community: My heart goes out to you, and I hope you can give yourself some space to grieve and take care of yourself this week ❤️

To the white folks in my community: We have to do better.

Being actively anti-racist, not just posting on social media so it looks like we care, is hard work, and it’s lifelong work. It’s full of discomfort, messy and sometimes hurtful mistakes, and humble pie.

And we cannot avoid it because we’re afraid we’re not going to show up and do it “right.” I get it, I want to do this “right” too.

So here’s the alternative to getting it “right:” We educate ourselves and act, however imperfectly. When we screw up, we listen and learn and do better the next time. Yes, it can be scary.

But THAT is a privilege… to simply be scared of posting something wrong on social media.

Black people are scared for their lives, and for the lives of their loved ones.

Let’s do more. In our lives and in our businesses.

Here are some places to start…

There are insane amounts of resources out there. These are just a few that I have engaged with that I wanted to pass on.

Choose something and do it.
