Dear Friends and Foes

Dear Friends and Foes,

Matter of the fact is, some of us are more impacted by white supremacy than others. This isn’t an opinion. Simple and facts.

Matter of the fact is, anti-Blackness is so deeply embedded in our society that it is alive and well not only in other groups of color toward Black people, but within Black communities as well. Let’s be mindful of this please. Love yourselves, and love us.

Matter of the fact is, as long as your movement and agenda doesn’t highlight how the issue impacts Black folks, I am going to be right behind you reminding folks how it does. Until you are doing this on your own. Indigenous, homeless, environmental, healthcare, infrastructure, etc…

Matter of the fact is, your solidarity fist doesn’t mean shit if you aren’t being ANTI RACIST, opposed to “not racist.” Cause just not being racist, is as racist as racism. Silence empowers it, pushing against it dismantles it.

Sincerely,

Tanya.
