If this moment feels confusing, try to zoom out to the bigger picture. Let’s start here:
1. White people stole this land from Native Americans.
2. White people are responsible for slavery.
Until we can really get our heads around those two truths, and until those two truths break our hearts, we will never be able to have an honest conversation about white supremacy and systemic racism.
And if your response is, “Why are they setting fires and destroying businesses?”—let’s dig into who THEY is. Because there’s a ton of evidence that THEY is actually a small number of white people, stealing and sabotaging this moment when most folks are peacefully protesting.
