We can’t work together to solve issues if you can’t understand the barriers of our work! #UnityInTheCommunity is about more than just holding hands, crossing color lines and being friends with each other. It’s about shared prosperity and equitable development. It’s about realizing that systemic racism exists and fighting alongside us to fix the impossible. Colorblindness is harmful for our community and color consciousness is essential. It’s not about bringing together white people and black people, it’s about creating a culture of health and social mobility for all, but especially for those most in need. You can’t fight for equity and not acknowledge why the gaps fundamentally exists. We have to agree about the problem to fix it, not just point it out, sweep it under the rug and hope no one sees it.
Me: Ab so damn lute ly!
