Non or anti? An action question for Black History Month, and other times

“We need to accept that what hurts one of us hurts all of us.”

Have a look at this video from theguardian.com featuring Marlon James. A short video to provoke thoughts.

Are you non-racist or anti-racist? As in, are you opposed to the idea in principle, but co-exist with it without much thought, or do you actually do something about it? 

The question might make us squirm a little. It’s Black History Month, so it’s a timely question for now, but I like that this video steps beyond racism to ask the same question of other marginalized groups.

The ones facing persecution aren’t the ones that need to be brave.
