I shared a post recently on my Facebook and Instagram discussing the difficulties I’ve faced but more importantly what my mother has faced.
However, I had to remove the post, due to the fact it was still too difficult for my mother to see written in black and white.
That kind of pain, shame, embarrassments, anger and frustration, I will never know. It haunts me to see my mother go through it alone, as I’ve never had to deal with racism as she has. The simple fact is we are both proudly mixed raced women. I’m white mixed-race, and mum is black mixed-race.
WE ARE THE SAME, YET TREATED SO DIFFERENTLY!
When she tells me her stories, I’m embarrassed and sicken to hear people can act a certain way. It saddened me to think there are still cruel, shortsighted, small-minded ignorant people in the world.
We are multicultural, educated, well travelled, have the world literally in our laps. We understand science, DNA, genetics.
Then why the hatred, the fear, why is white privilege still a thing, and yes I’m part of that privilege too.
It’s disappointing that our evolution of empathy, compassion, self-awareness, is so slow. Still guided by the ego, the belief that certain people are above others, the righteous minded with a power-hungry attitude.
It’s about time we attacked this issue face on. I know my mum would have loved this kind of anti-racism support when she was growing up, and I’m just glad it’s around while she is still alive.
Hopefully, in her lifetime, we will see a change in the world. One where we are all equal, all privilege, all-loving. Acting as one race, the human race.
As you can imagine it is scary to write about such things for fear of backlash. But if we all stay quiet because of fear we will never move forward.
If you’re interested in expanding your mind, I’ve found a great blog with these awesome resources, check them out below.
They’ve put together a great selection of Podcast, Instagram feeds, courses, books and organisation to donate to if possible.
