violettbeane We all have a voice. Let’s use it to help fight for the policies we want put in place and the rights we want to keep sharing with everyone. Our future can be one filled with love, understanding, and compassion, but only if we all come together to make it so. Pay attention to the way you talk (and think) about people who look and seem different from yourself. Love people FOR their differences not despite them.
I’m guilty of saying some negative things to and about people during this election, and for that I’m sorry. I preach words of sharing love and embracing differences, and I’m not following that by generalizing groups of people. But we also can’t deny that if you’re willing to ignore, look past or “be okay” with someone making racist and sexist comments, that says something about you. You might not even realize it, but that is enabling and sharing those beliefs, and you’re the people I’m trying to reach.
Please I beg you to really think about the way you treat people, and never hold yourself above others.
