Children are not born with racism.
It is taught. It is passed down from generations. It is our responsibility to look at what beliefs we have been taught and challenge and change them.
It is our responsibility to look at our privilege and realize we didn’t earn it. It is our responsibility to teach empathy and compassion and to call out racism, sexism, bigotry, when we hear it. Especially now, with a “leader” who exemplifies hate and injustice. We need to demand respect for all. And seriously for those who think they are better than others based on the color of their skin and don’t value human life and realize their views are wrong, they need to do some honest reflection and growth. Do it for all of our lives so that we may find renewed peace and safety. Photo cred. Xander Wagner @alssndrs
