Unless non-Black people, especially white people, start learning about how anti-Black racism and white supremacy has shaped us and the societies we live in — and start challenging these systems — Racism isn’t going away and Black people will continue to die.
The journey to unlearning racism and white supremacy is actual work. It can be uncomfortable, but this discomfort pales in comparison to the violence Black people endure every single day.
