I genuinely wonder how many brands are putting out statements of support for protests are doing that genuinely versus doing it for clicks/engagement and strictly because it's "good business" or whatever. What actionable changes will these companies make?
Love the energy - but I reiterate, Mr. Governor: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?!
To everyone making public statements, I see you. But from a wordsmith: please stop using soft language like “inhumane” and “injustice” in them. If you feel like you really need those words, then include the root cause plainly. Racism.
RT @LouisatheLast: If you’re a white person at these protests, and you see other white people starting **** like throwing rocks or starting fires, you need to shut that down. That’s not solidarity, it’s agitation, and the ones who will wind up paying for it are Black and brown people
RT @lo_cartier: The one thing that still infuriates me fr is that Colin Kaepernick tried to tell the nation about this. He was willing to sacrifice everything he had to stand up for his people and what did he get in return? He got betrayed and lost his job. It still doesn't sit right with me.
RT @_Michaelinho: If we want change, let’s go ALL IN. Can we all stop the women’s sports jokes? Can we we all stop stereotyping by race and mansplaining? Can we agree that homophobia is trash? Don’t pick and choose battles, break down the whole system then rebuild something beautiful
RT @_Michaelinho: Ok, so you’ve picked the “black” side in the proverbial race battle...now what? Do you know the laws in your state? Do you know that midterm elections are far more important than presidential, but only about 40% of Americans vote? Educate and vote because these RT’s are worthless
When you’re ready to stop feeling offended or bad about yourself...see below. 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾
Are you going to report your boss when he discriminates against coworkers/customers of color? Will you correct friends making racist jokes when we aren’t around? Will you take the time to teach that old, racist aunt that the world has changed? Don’t just post memes, be the change
