"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." -- African proverb.
We owe it to our black brothers and sisters, and the wisdom of their African ancestors, to go farther than ever before on deconstructing the foundations of white privilege and racial injustice that have been perpetuated for far too much of the history of human civilization.
The time for meaningful change is now. The time for us to journey and mobilize that change together. It may not be easy or pleasant, but it's long overdue, and it requires all of us to do some climbing up out of our comfort zones and lifting ourselves and one another up into new levels of curiosity, awareness and perspective....and most importantly, action.
Who's with me?
