BLACK LIVES MATTER – An Article on Racism and Accounts to Follow
Unless you’ve been offline in Nepal of the last few years and in particular weeks #blacklivesmatter is one of the most important hashtags of the moment that requests ALL of us to stop, listen, learn and ACT. The ‘that only happens in America’ mentality is 1 incorrect and 2 so what…is injustice and murder in America less important of an issue because it’s the first world…or because Trump is a tool? – you’re here reading this so we know we both agree no.
With awareness and gratitude that every single follower of our Instagram and our content here on the Social Edit – we know we’re preaching to the choir here but what we thought could be most helpful is to simply share some reliable online tools to learn, donate and act as a global citizen during this pandemic – the racism pandemic.
SIDE NOTE: Isn’t it so jaw-dropping that for the last 3 months all people have been saying ‘we’re in this together’ ‘we’re all one’ in the face of death and health yet when it comes down to racism there is a clear line between us and them – I mean as the old saying goes ‘you can’t argue with f*cking idiots’…but ‘we can outsmart them and in this case call them out.
