We cannot claim to live in a world of equality if members of our communities are victim to hatred and bigotry. Silence in the face of racism has always been unacceptable, and now more than ever, it is no longer an option. We need to acknowledge the inequalities and disparities that stem from systemic racism and harm our Black communities. Regardless of our backgrounds, beliefs, or political affiliations, it is our responsibility to truly recognize the injustices that we see so that we can work to change them. We must be able to eliminate our fears and prejudices, and we must be willing to listen and learn from our colleagues, neighbors, and friends who have been marginalized and discriminated against.
