I have been thinking for too long on what I should say now, but a voice in my head keeps whispering to me: “who cares? Who on this earth amongst my few readers will check this website with burning fingers, waiting on what I, another white woman on the internet, has got to say about this?” I know, nobody will care about this post. But this is not about me, my statistic performance, or anything else that is related to me- this is about them. This is about the people who suffered for decades, who have been oppressed by political systems, so that white people can simply live their lives as they are used to, without a single care in their minds.
I know, as a white person, I will never know how racism feels like. No matter how hard I try to understand, I will never fully understand.
I encourage everyone who reads this, to educate yourself. To make the search for you a bit easier, I have put together a small list of resources.
BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES TO BUY FROM UK:
BLACK OWNED BOOKSTORES TO BUY FROM:
BLACK LIVES MATTER:
Why I am no longer talking to people about race – Reni Eddo Lodge
Me and white supremacy- Layla F Saad
Girl, Woman, Other – Bernadine Evaristo
I know that it is not a lot- but if you try and have a little browse through the internet, you will come across a lot more. I recommend everyone who loves podcasts to listen to “The Daily” by the New York Times which explains thw whole situations and its happenings in a very well way.
We need to do better.
