You Say...

1 min

YOU SAY, you want to make a difference, but you really just want to keep the status quo.

YOU SAY, inclusion is important to create a diverse environment, yet you continue to allow people to work in silos and choose those that keep the workplace undiversified.

YOU SAY, you want to have an impact, but when someone stands up for injustice in their space, you do nothing but silence them.

So why can't we change the systemic racism in our institutions?

Because keeping a system that is oppressed, depressed, marginalized, paralyzes creativity, innovation, and upward mobility of people of color, and keeps predominately white institutions in place.

That is what is really important to them, not justice.
