‘It’s really important for us to understand that we need to be always working for racial justice, whether there’s dramatic moments or not’
Maybe you posted a black square on Instagram FB, -7.51%, donated money to a racial-justice organization, reflected with friends about your own privilege, or purchased a title from one of the internet’s many anti-racism reading lists in the last three weeks.
But as nationwide protests and a reckoning with America’s racist past —and present — hurtle onward, activists say the work is far from done. In fact, they say, today’s conversations are only the beginning.
“Realize that what’s going on now is part of a long-term pattern of racial injustice, discrimination, exploitation and violence,” Paul Kivel, an educator, activist and author of the book “Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice,” told MarketWatch. “It’s really important for us to understand that we need to be always working for racial justice, whether there’s dramatic moments or not.”
