Don’t take this personally, unless it’s personal to you.

You’re hurting, you know that your Black fam is hurting. You may be feeling into how your Black fam HAS BEEN hurting all along. And it’s daunting. It seems too big, too diffuse, too entrenched for any individual to change anything.

When you don’t know what to do to help, the best thing to do is listen and follow the lead of those who have had their sleeves rolled up. The people who have been doing the work and learning the work.
