I have so many thoughts...and where to start? The foundation of the United States is built on whiteness...yet our constitution is full of white supremacy. Because of the foundation, systems, and institutions are built on racism, as the people of the nation, we need to utilize our power and privilege to change up our systems. Elected officials need to step up...listen and learn...discontinue the "tradition" that has been set...discontinue "the way we've always done things"....cause that way does NOT afford every person in our nation the same opportunity, rights, or liberties. When a BIPOC is not able to run down a street, sleep in her bed, or play in the park without fear of being murdered - we are a broken nation/country/and people. This violence against BIPOC is unacceptable and needs to stop.
