Remember your history.
If you’re white, go study. Go do your work. Go shut the fuck up and listen to a person of color who’s willing to share their experiences with you. Shut up and do your work. It is work that needs to be done and tonight you are seeing what happens when people fail to do that work.
If you’re a person of color all I can say to you is that I am trying to do my work. I am trying and I am sad.
ETA: If you’ve come to this post after the fact to tell me that racism doesn’t exist, that white privilege is a myth, or that “racism is a two way street” and white people are oppressed too, please don’t leave a comment. It won’t be posted. Instead, click here.
