In the wake of grief and tragedy around the murder of George Floyd, and the many Black men and women before him at the hands of police, we are seeing our place in being unequivocally and actively anti-racist. As our city burns in turmoil and pain, we wanted to take our time, to be thoughtful and exact and intentional with our words here because of how significant this is, but we know it will never fully be right. And there s learning in that too. It’s important that we say something, that we denounce white supremacy, and more so, that we Do. Something. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Personally and collectively, we owe you, our Black friends and family and readers, not only a conversation that acknowledges this pain and these deep, deep problems - we owe you our ACTION. Beyond an Instagram stories post or social media message, we need to make sure that whatever message we are sending can really be backed up with action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because all of this - the words, the conversation, the sentiment - is not valuable until white people, those on the POY social team included, are willing to work to dismantle the systems of white supremacy that oppress BIPOC, and that includes personal responsibility for learning, growth, and follow through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can read more about where we go from here (i.e. actions) and specific links to the voices of color we are learning from on the most recent post. Thanks to Rita on our team for this image. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
