Please, Don’t Be a Bystander

1 min read

Be the person who does more than just express outrage.

Being outraged by how African-Americans are treated in this country isn’t enough. Being sympathetic isn’t enough. We have to take positive action. Most especially important for those of us who are white.

A reader sent this resource to me and I share it with you, with this ask:  Please do something to tackle racism today.

Anti-Racism Resources for White People

Take your pick, but do one small action today. Be the pebble in your community that starts a ripple.


I hope you will consider sharing this post.
I’ve also posted it to Twitter and Facebook.
