Should you be talking about Racism?
One of my favorite perspectives on racism is that it is not enough to simply not be racist. Instead, we must be violently anti-racist and speak out against racism in all its forms, both overtly and covertly.
You might be wondering what this has to do with my business. Well, it has everything to do with it. We see companies take a stand against injustice and leveraging their platform of loyal customers to raise awareness. While this might feel risky as a business (who knows who you might piss off) it lets others know more about your company culture. In this vein, I would like to share an infographic I made of a recent conversation with my almost 6 year old. This is the short version but I think it gets the point across. George was a regular guy that didn't deserve to die for his mistakes.
You can get your own copy of A Kid's Book About Racism by Jelani Memory here. I hope this helps you consider how you can start talking about racism not only as a family but also a business. The world is watching you and we need you to choose humanity and justice.
