Anti-Racism is very important to Progressive Devilry. We cannot move forward as a country while racism and inequity abounds.
You can do your small part by making things awkward. That may sound odd, but what we mean is: say something the next time you hear someone repeat a casually racist comment.
Ever hear something, laugh because you feel expected to, then have a pit in your stomach wondering if you should say something?
You should. We understand this will take practice. We are still practicing. Do your best and help us stamp out racism.
There is no more room for passivity when people are dying, and our systemically racist government institutions deny what we witness on a daily basis.
Don’t turn away next time, or pretend that your friend or family member doesn’t say things like that on the regular. They do.
