Justice for Floyd

This week’s newsletter has been postponed (I’ll share 2 next week).

As my deadline for this week’s newsletter approached, something felt wrong about writing on the usual topics I put out given the current state of world affairs.

At the same time, writing on systemic racism isn’t something I’ve done before and I didn’t want to appear opportunistic in doing so.

After speaking with a friend about how I could possibly do more in the fight against anti-blackness, we unpacked that I have a very shallow understanding when it comes to racism and a LOT to learn.

So, I’m going to use this time to educate myself and learn a little more about practical ways we can drive change.

Here are some links that I’ve been recommended:

Books:

How to be an antiracist

How to combat white supremacy

Supporting funds and initiatives which help black people:

Minnesota freedom fund

BLM: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ms_blm_homepage_2019

Blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/

Let me know in the comments if there’s any other resources or websites you recommend.

See you next week,

Faisal.
