However, I want to address something that's probably in the back of a lot of people's minds:
"If we help Black people, then what will that take away from White people?
"If we help women, then what will that take away from men?"
Let's say you work downtown in a major metropolitan city. One day, during lunch, you walk outside and see a huge office building on fire.
You hear a siren behind you. Turning around, you see fire trucks rushing towards the fire.
No, I hope you wouldn't think that.
That's how fighting the fire of systematic racism and sexism works.
Imagine the world we would live in if we supported female scientists and Black engineers in the 1900s. We would probably have gotten to the moon sooner.
People like Marie Curie, Grace Hopper, Anita Borg, Katherine Johnson and so many others revolutionized science and technology despite sexism and racism.
Industries we can't even imagine now would exist bringing opportunities to everyone.
