I was born white.

Updated: Jun 4, 2020

Because I was born white, I've had a lot of opportunity. I've had privilege that I've taken for granted on a daily basis: being able to ask questions to police, walk through any neighbourhood without being suspected of crime and much, MUCH more. My life has never been threatened by the colour of my skin.

I've also been privy to a lot of racism: not the overt kinds but the ones that get brushed off as jokes. Not the ones we learned about in school but the kind where somebody drops a joke at a party and nobody calls them on it. The kind you might miss if you're not paying attention. The kind we can't ignore and never should have.

We need to do better.

We need to do better.

We need to do better.

Over the last few days I've put a lot of thought into a plan moving forward but I'm not done yet. What you can expect on this blog is:

  1. More content from Black and Indigenous artists on my weekly playlists.

  2. More interviews with Black and Indigenous artists.

  3. Opportunities for action and growth. I'm no expert but I want to share resources from people who are. These will largely be shared over social media and through my monthly newsletter.

We need to do more than enjoy Black culture and popular Black musicians.

Peace, love and history. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
