I am anti-racist
I am anti-racist
I find it inconceivable that someone should hold prejudice or discriminate against another human being because they have a different skin colour, ethnicity or religion, as that just isn't something I am capable of. Our differences are what makes up the rich tapestry of the world and we should embrace, nurture and learn from each other, not hate.

I am an art teacher in secondary school. I will break white silence by incorporating black artists into my curriculum and promoting learning and discussion of the racism they face or have faced and, where appropriate, how they address this in their work. I will give my pupils the opportunity to think about the privileges they may enjoy or be denied, and express positive messages of equality through art.

The black community have shouldered this burden alone for too long. It is time for us to pick up the fight. Too late but we promise it won't be too little. I have already spoken to hundreds of people in my big organisation about the change we need to see. I will speak to a thousand more. But more importantly we will help you dismantle white supremacy in every facet that it exists.

I'm a secondary school teacher and the kids in our school (past and present) have already put together an open letter/petition to get more and better diversity education and to stamp out racism in school. I will find as many ways as I can to help push this.

I'm on an ongoing journey of learning about my own privilege and how I can combat white supremacy. I know that I have benefitted from being white and I am tired of seeing inequality rife across the world. I need to speak up and do more to support people of colour - and I will

I am a teacher in a UK secondary school I have started a group with all staff to think of ways we can help and stop racism. We are supporting the campaign run by the black curriculum.

We will be implementing change and challenging where we can. I have asked for a speaker at the next school INSET (September) to support the cause.

We can make a difference through education

I am happy to stand up for what's right. A man on the train one day accused a man of acting suspiciously. The man was doing nothing wrong. I had a discussion with the accusing man and pointed out I felt he was being racist, the man had done nothing & wasn't acting suspiciously. We had a lengthy exchange and people on the train started clapping...

I will not be silent any longer in fear of upsetting friends colleagues etc.

I will speak out at every opportunity.

Even if the only thing I can do is share on social media I will advance into my old age fighting for BLM

I will ask why when family members like posts that are racist. I will break my silence and challenge their opinions when they post messages or share messages from others that spread hate and fear. I will educate myself and my children and speak out and challenge where I can.

All lives matter.

Black lives matter. Nobody should be discriminated against because of the colour of their skin or their ancestry. But it happens every day. I'm sure I make mistakes all the time when interacting with/talking about people of colour. I apologise and I will try harder.

I am 34 year old white woman with three children, one of whom is part black American.
I am ashamed to say I have never educated her on her heritage or helped her get to know her culture, I will ensure I educate myself so I can educate all of my children.

I will support the fight for justice and actively encourage them to be a part of it...

Over the last few years I have become aware my privilege and the opportunities afforded to me because of my white skin. I am ashamed to say that although I have been 'non-racist' I have until now not understood the difference between this an anti-racism...

I have over the last few months I have been working on my understanding and knowledge of the racism and challenges faced by black and brown people by reading, watching and listening to the words spoken by anti-racist campaigners and writers a

Major political and social change takes a long time unfortunately, but with small steps and a determination from many sections of society, it will happen. I stand against discrimination of any kind and with hope a better society will come.

As a white man in the UK I definitely can do more to help end this culture of racism.
WE ARE ALL HUMANS
WE ARE ALL HUMANS
We are all human, we all love, we all hurt, we are the same. Race, creed, religion will never change that.

The mistreatment of people based on something so ridiculous as race is ludicrous. How can this still be happening?

I’m breaking the white silence and am determined to see a positive change for all worldwide.

I support you. I am examining myself for nuances of racism and bias. I am watching videos, reading articles on the history of racism and slavery and sharing them with many others. Although I have a migrant history and childhood experiences of prejudice I recognise that my white skin meant I could hide. I'm proud of what the Bristol protest achieved in one historic moment that years of debate couldn't.

I'm old now but will if possible attend local protests.

I will use my white privilege wisely in the fight against discrimination.

I will be anti-racist

I will learn about racism from people who have experienced it.

I will acknowledge my whiteness and also not fall into white guilt that makes me inactive aganst the fight.

I will no longer be colour blind

I will put myself in a position to be corrected and take risks. I will make myself uncomfortable.

We have begun a campaign to explain to members what Black Lives Matter is all about and the importance of standing up as anti racist. I would not describe any of our members as racist but the unconscious biases do break through and I know that to be anti- racist I must challenge them.

YouTube Video SWISS - CAN'T BREATHE (PROD: SKY BEATS) #CantBreatheSwiss

Published Date: 30 May 2020



Description: Made in 2014 after 'Eric Garner' was murdered, and it's sad that these words are still so relevant. So I decided to do a video release in light of the recent murder of 'George Floyd' to release the shock-energy I received after watching his death yesterday (29.05.20) which I tried to avoid doing.



YouTube Video Gil Scott-Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (Full Band Version)

Published Date: 16 March 2016



Description: Gil Scott-Heron - The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (1971)


As the US Civil Rights Movement gained momentum in the late 1960s, Scott-Heron recorded this musical poem that attacks the lethargy of the nation, spouting lame TV advertising slogans to parody the seriousness of the struggle:


“The revolution will not go better with Coke / The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath / The revolution will put YOU in the driver's seat.”

BLACK LIVES MATTER

HOW DO WE CONVEY EMOTIONAL PAIN AND MOURN BRUTAL MURDERS OF BLACK BODIES

...

Sometimes while we adjust to a trauma music can often speaks for us can evokes emotions much louder and deeper than our own words at times.

 

These 3 songs tell a story, a journey of struggle and pain, all three songs takes us there, to a place where it all makes sense...

 

You may have a different son you can call upon, what we do know It's time for a NEW Revolution ~ Black & White Revolution.

 

It has to be together, it cannot work apart and together we can make it through.
