Are you, like me, a privileged white person looking for something you can do to make a difference? Are you, like me, a Karen, looking for a way to make amends for all the idiot Karens out there?
I won’t say “look no further”. In face, look further. Look much further. But here’s a place to start. There is a LOT to consume, and with that in mind, I recommend picking a few things you can honestly commit to doing, and then building from there. As for me, I will commit to donating money to BLM, every other book I read will be from an anti-racism reading list for at least the next year or 12 books (whichever comes last) and I will actively look for POC-owned businesses to support.
This is a small list to start – I will keep updating it as I find more.
