I’ve always considered myself to be “not racist”, but over this past month I, like so many white people, have realised that being “not racist” isn’t the same as being anti-racist. It’s been shameful and eye-opening and I need to do better.

I acknowledge my white privilege 100%; I don’t know how it feels to experience racism but I can use my voice and any platforms I have to help dismantle white supremacy. Working towards being truly anti-racist will take time, and I might make mistakes, but silence is far worse.

 

But this is not about me or any other white person, so I’ll leave it there. I couldn’t not acknowledge any of this here though, it felt disingenuous.
