The thread was posted to my social media two days ago and I thought it befitting to post it here too as so much awareness needs to be made regarding issues of racism across the globe. It’s easy for us to blame a system of white supremacy and white privilege; it’s harder to blame ourselves. As people of colour, we should really acknowledge racism in our own cultures, communities and in our own homes. Black Lives Matter.
