“We have to not only protest but (myself included) have uncomfortable conversations with friends and family. Donate if you can. We can ALL do better. The protests will end but the racism still exists. Dive into the discomfort. Start talking about white silence and white privilege.”Image and caption credit: Jen Atkin Instagram

“HATE doesn’t get you anywhere, it will always destroy your soul and hurt others.
But LOVE ❤️ does, it will always give you peace. And make others that surround you feel good.
It’s important to Love your kids unconditionally, so they don’t grow up to HATE.
Thank you f @kristengiorgi for posting this ❤️”Image and caption credit: Johnny Ramirez Instagram

“I want to take a minute to express so much love and gratitude to my ig followers and community. You all followed me for hair tutorials and got activism instead and have embraced it with open hearts and open minds. I promise I will post tutorials again soon, but appreciate your support towards social justice and racial equality around the 🌎 I have an amazing swipe up google doc you can find in my story with facts that support common arguments around BLM when approaching friends and family members who still aren’t getting it. Also highly suggest watching 13th by @avaon Netflix, reading The New Jim Crow, downloading the free e-book The End Of Policing from @versobooks and watching Sunday nights episode of @lastweektonight for more information on why we must defund the police and imagine a new vision for public safety! love you all!

“You don’t HAVE to believe what your parents/grandparents taught you. You CAN create your OWN thoughts and feelings, and it’s OKAY for them to differ from your family/friends. Let’s be the generation that is creating CHANGE from those old ways of thinking. Educate yourself and know it’s OKAY to think differently than the society you grew up in. And help KINDLY teach those who are stuck in the past. Stand up for what FEELS right. ❤️ Xx, R”Image and caption credit: Riawna Capri Instagram

“Over the last week, so much has changed over the last week and nothing has changed…
It’s very frustrating…
As a black woman…
As a mother…
As an American…
As a human…
I’ll be honest: it’s been A LOT for me as it has for all of us.
We all deal with it differently:
Some riot.See Also
Some sit still.
And some create.
We have all just witnessed one of the most horrible things we will ever see and I’ve been shaken to my core.
I’ve chosen to be still and pray.
Prayers for the families of
Prayers that no person is ever murdered again simply because of the color of their skin. 🙏🏾 .Image and caption credit: Kim Kimble Instagram
