Let's Talk Racism
(without being racist)
We are extremely proud and excited to share this platform which we decided to create for you. We cannot believe that in 2020 racism is still affecting so many people across the globe. There is no place for racism and we all know that. We also know that we need to talk about racism and the subordinate issues which surround it. We know it's not easy but if a change is what we seek, we need to try.
We need to talk to each other and actually listen to understand, not respond.
We wanted to create a safe, inclusive space that is for absolutely everyone regardless of their race.
We are aware that many people of colour have felt sincere frustration at having previously tried to express themselves and discuss their experiences with racism only to feel that they were either misunderstood or simply ignored. We want people of colour to feel comfortable to talk about race because we cannot continue to fuel ignorance with silence.
We need to understand where the problems are so that we can all as people work to make this world a better place for all of us. You don't have to feel alone. Nobody does. We stand together in the fight against racism.
We promise to elevate the voices of people of colour - the voices that are long overdue a microphone. We promise to truly listen, land learn. We promise to share real experiences: those hard to hear and also the positive which provide a glimpse of hope that we are moving in the right direction.
Please let us be clear - we are not here to be racist to any race in any way shape or form. This is NOT an anti-white campaign, nor is it an anti-any race campaign. Bigotry and racism will NOT be tolerated under any circumstance on this platform.
We are simply trying to showcase that racism is everywhere, here in the UK and GLOBALLY, and that it's happening to people you know.
There is still so much injustice in his world, but together truly believe we can make even the slightest bit of difference.
Together we stand. Together we can make this world a better place for everyone.
