“I don’t know how to begin to articulate any of this but I don’t want to avoid it because of that either. All of this has been so confronting about societal privilege and systemic racism,” she wrote.

“So many of us have never had to lift the veil of this introspection and outward perspective because we haven’t needed to. That in itself says everything. This needs to change so much.”

I don’t know how to begin to articulate any of this but I don’t want to avoid it because of that either. All of this has been so confronting about societal privilege and systemic racism. So many of us have never had to lift the veil of this introspection and outward perspective because we haven’t needed to. That in itself says everything. This needs to change so much. Calling out racism and injustice, voicing our upset and outrage, supporting and encouraging discussion and education. Again, I do not know even scratching the surface how this must feel nor do I claim to, but on a human level avoiding the discussion because it’s difficult does not feel progressive or supportive.
