    Thank you so much for sharing these resources. I’ve been signing petitions and trying to consume much more content from black creators. I watched See You Yesterday last night in fact – I really enjoyed it but it certainly has some very seriously themes. I’ll definitely be checking out more of the films etc that you’ve suggested! I hope you’re doing okay in this current situation xxx

    I think you understood my post. All lives cannot matter until black lives matter. It is important to understand that differentiation. Black lives are the ones being killed and targeted at the moment not all lives, therefore the movement is called #BlackLivesMatter is what I stand for and what everyone should stand for.

    What a beautiful list of resources you have! I love reading good books because I feel that sometimes it is easier to grasp a problem through a well-told story, and you have shared an amazing list; just the titles of the books say so much!

    I’m so so sorry that society/ the system is still fundamentally failing you. The all lives matter brigade are driving me mad right now. Of course all lives matter, Karen, but the point is that no one is trying to tell you that yours doesn’t. I really hope that this sparks some real change. I’ve been adding some more books to my TBR this week and I’ve just taken a screenshot of your list to see if I can add a few more. I hope you’re holding up okay ❤️

    Such a beautifully written article. My heart goes out to you and everyone in the US. Much love from Australia, where we have our own horrors against our Indigenous peoples to try to make right (if that’s even possible).

    With everything happening lately, we need to shift our culture, and especially keep on fighting injustice. We shouldn’t have thousands of arrests to make the four that should have happened in the first place. At the same time, people of power must be held accountable and be trained not to take advantage of their role. We always talk about diversity and inclusion but don’t act on it as best across the board. I love that you have shared resources where we can educate ourselves and help.

    Thank you for all these resources! I think it’s really important that people educate themselves more, even people who are non-racist. Unfortunately I’m seeing a lot of people still saying “All Lives Matter”… but I don’t think they understand that black lives need to matter before all lives matter! This is where education is desperately needed.

    Thank you for the list of great options to learn more – I live in Minneapolis and this has been a particularly stress time for us. I would like to learn more to help be part of the solution.

    I am so sorry for what you all as the Minneapolis community are going through. I know you all probably felt this the hardest. It’s hard but I do believe we can all make positive changes by learning ways to do more ! Sending you love from South Africa !

    Thank you for creating this post and sharing knowledge that I was still unaware of, as I am constantly still learning whilst raising awareness as well. This touches on real honesty and it is needed right now! We need to make a change, especially for our future children who don’t deserve to have to deal with all this because half of our society couldn’t be bothered. A change is coming, I feel it, and this is only the start. Sending you endless love and light and good wishes.

    With Love,

    wow – what a powerful powerful piece. Thank you so much for writing this. You’re so right. I feel like often, people think that by seeing us protest, or trying to get our points across – they think that we have such tough skin ALL the time. Truth is, this is HARD. The pain is REAL and we are TIRED. This has been one of the most exhausting times I’ve ever lived through – so to remind people that we are HUMAN and we are broken hearted.. I feel like it’s important.

    Keep your head up and please keep reminding yourself that lots of people do see us and we are loved. you. are. loved.
