Social Responsibility II

Published in Allyship - 1 min to read

This is maybe the third or fourth attempt at writing this blog…

On my mind today; as someone with a lot of privilege, I feel a responsibility to both educate myself on and talk about the issues that stop other people from having the same privilege as I do. If people like me don’t take an proactive part in those conversations, things won’t change, as we are the problem.

On the other hand, I don’t want to say the wrong thing, or for the wrong reasons. I want to be informed enough to say something persuasive and meaningful and un-ignorant, but I’m not, at least not yet. I don’t want this to be performative, to be a way of absolving myself of my own guilt, to make me feel better about myself, or to be all about me. I’m not very good at that either.

More, hopefully better, thoughts on this soon.
