I have always thought of myself as a good person someone who did not believe in unfair and unjust treatment of anyone. Learning the term of not being racist versus being anti racist was the moment I realized that although I am not a racist I am not an anti-racist. I have had blinders on to this cruel world and had this thought that because I see a person of a different race as just that and nothing else that the world was the same. It was not until a month ago when the world started to make a stand that I realized although we have come far we have not come far enough. Although I feel the same about all people and believe in equality there are far too many inequalities in the world. Just noticing these issues is the first step. I can not sit silently if I want to be anti-racist I need to stand up and do work on myself and take a stand as well.
