If you’re NOT talking to your children about what’s going on right now, that’s PRIVILEGE.
Being able to NOT look at and acknowledge what is happening is a PRIVILEGE.
Before we sat down to record this episode of the PUSH podcast, we attended a protest in L.A., as a family. With our teenage daughters because WE, as a family, WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. We don't want to just watch from home while others are fighting for injustice. And we don't think that “sending prayers” is enough. We want to DEMAND CHANGE.
Know that not all protests are violent. So don’t believe everything you see on T.V.
In fact, 99% of people are really trying to protest against INEQUALITY. It’s the 1% that resort to vandalism and destruction. -NOT SOMETHING WE CONDONE.
It was extremely emotional for all of us to be there…
We cried for at least the first 30 mins of the march. For a few reasons:
This past week has been full of emotions. I’ve sat in my thoughts. I’ve had multiple discussions with friends, family members, even fellow business owners and I can’t help but feel a calling to STEP UP and STAND UP for what’s right.
Now’s not the time to rest! Now’s not the time to stand back and NOT take a stance for those in need!
WE STAND in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy, and the historic oppression of the Black community!
Our nation, our communities and our brothers and sisters are hurting. NOW is the time to make our voices heard, and open ourselves and our hearts up to having uncomfortable and difficult, *but necessary*conversations.
We believe in fighting for what’s right.
We believe that ALL cops are NOT racists.
We also KNOW that all black people are NOT THUGS.
Let’s start by TRYING to soften our hearts to the pain that others are experiencing, and by walking in each other’s shoes for just a moment.
We’re sharing all our views and conversations that we’re having in our household and I hope that you hear this week’s episode and feel the need to TAKE ACTION, not matter how big or how small.
