performative activism is not real activism. tweeting a hashtag/copy pasta and putting blm in your bio/dn is not the same as calling reps, supporting black businesses, and actively educating/speaking up against racist friends/family. carry this energy to your real life too pls
also stop making those stupid "if you see this reply with the hashtag" tweets. you can keep the hashtag trending by actually talking about the issue and spreading petitions/resources to educate people
this is mostly aimed at ppl who do only social media activism (even speaking up when racist comments are made w a simple “that’s wrong or makes me uncomfortable”) pls don’t fight me on this if you’re also taking reasonable steps irl or doing as much as you’re able
