I am not doing a ‘normal’ weekend wrap-up post today. I hesitated to even have a post up at all. But I can’t stay silent and still be an ally. I can’t stay silent and still be anti-racist.
Last week broke me. From across the ocean, and even though I’m white, it broke me. I can’t even begin to imagine how last week broke Black people in the USA. Seeing George Floyd being murdered by a white police man filmed by passersby who tried to stop it is the single most violent and callous thing I have seen.
If you want to help the protesters, there are various ways to donate money, both to bail-out funds and to help with other things that are needed these days.
If as me, you live far away, and you know you still need to educate yourself – there’s this great list of books we can read and learn from The Accidental Bookclub Resources.
To all of those out protesting now, please stay safe. Please stay healthy. Please stay strong.
