Watch this powerful monologue created by Jamilah Rosemond (Peace, Love and Cupcakes) about the state of racism and police brutality in this country:

View this post on Instagram

This is my truth!! I know every black person can pull out countless memories of when they weren’t treated equally in their own neighborhoods, schools, by their classmates, teachers, and even strangers. We have dealt with this our entire life. • I was drawn to create this monologue not just for my black brothers and sisters but for my white peers. Racism is taught in the environments we live in and conversations about racism needs to start in your very homes!!! We are the next generation of judges, lawyers, teachers, parents, cops, amongst other things. We have the power to make sure people don’t get away with brutal murders like of George Floyd’s, Breonna Taylor‘s, Ahmaud Albert‘s, and many others. We have the power to stop the pattern and we have the power to make sure we don’t go back to our normal ways after a week of protesting. No it won’t be easy and yes we have a long long way to come but we can really do this. For my white peers who have still remained silent, why do you choose to? Why do you feel inclined to “act” like you care instead of just actually wanting to help? Is it because you feel like speaking up will make your other white friends uncomfortable? Well, I encourage you to challenge them, spark up these uncomfortable conversations because discomfort stems growth. Growth from thinking it’s not you or their problem or that it doesn’t affect them. We need your help! • Like I stated in my piece, “acknowledge your privilege and entitlement…speak up, sign the petitions, donate, and join the protests because your silence is only fueling the violence.” • Racism will never end if we don’t end up on the same page. If you are saying well how do I talk to my friends and family about this? Please dm me, I have plenty of articles, books, podcasts, and movies you can use to help you. #blacklivesmatter #wearetired #enoughisenough
