listening and being silent


It is not my time to speak. I am not black, nor will I ever understand what People of Colour go through every day. Today is not the day to share my thoughts, but I will share some of the resources that I have read or watched, either in the past or recently, as well as some of the books and media that I have on my list to consume soon.

Don’t ask people of colour to do the work for you, they have done it enough. Do the work for yourself.
