Our voices are always heard first and foremost. Yet the racial disparity in our communities is rarely, if ever, discussed.
We make spaces that should be open to everyone, only truly welcoming to white people. Instead of boosting the voices of our most marginalized, we silence them
We need to boost and spread their voices, not silence and talk over them on issues they clearly know more about because they experience them
My skin color elevates me over all people of color in society as a whole and within my own communities
I am afforded that privilege because I'm white. Because systematic racism benefits me, a white person, on every level
People of color, and especially those at the intersection of other marginalized identities, need us white folks to do better.
