natashandlovu Rest In Peace George Floyd.
You shouldn’t have to be black or American to take an injustice (let’s be frank, murder) like this seriously. Racism is alive and well all over the world and it affects many of us. But right now, in America, we are seeing the murdering of black bodies on a regular basis, with the perpetrators not suffering the consequences of their actions.
As a black person, the last few days have been EXHAUSTING, to say the least. From the racist woman who called the cops on the bird watcher knowing DAMN WELL what would happen to him when they pulled up, to George Floyd’s brutal murder at the hands of a cop, these acts of violence against black bodies are painful to watch online. But I also know, as someone who travels to the USA a lot, it can easily be me or one of my black British friends having the cops called on them for just being a black person in a particular space. So yes, I take this shit personally.
Meanwhile, those of you who aren’t black should be doing your part as well in dismantling racism and racist systems. Yes you, who considers me your black friend. Yes you, who adopts black culture and music into your everyday life. Yes you, who come summertime likes to put your arm next to mine and say “oh look, I’m almost as dark as you ! “ If you’re not speaking out against injustice and keeping quiet, then you are a part of the problem.
