I think a lot of times people assume that activism has to be this big, epic sort of thing, where you’re pit marching, and that’s part of it, and I think a lot of people are ready for that and down for that. But I think that we have to start where we are in the communities where we live, in the schools that our kids attend, [and] in our workplaces. Having good productive conversations about things that are really important to people of color and ought to be important to white folks. So, there’s little things like that, starting where we are.

Everyone wants to call God onto their side but we should spend less time praying to get God on my side and more time figuring out if I can get on God’s side.

Identity is our most powerful asset, but it is also one of the things that’s probably most misunderstood and it’s often compromised. Because, you know the first mirror that you look into is usually your parents’ eyes, or a guardian, someone who has had an influence over you.
Their hopes, their fears, their aspirations for you is projected onto you at a very young age whether you realize it or not. Their missteps, their own failures at times, they will cast that onto because in their mind, they’re making up for things that they did not achieve. And so we become the vessel for delivering their hopes and dreams to the world.
And so, what happens over time, is the more that happens, the more we begin to question our own voice and our voice — we either become silent or we become awakened and a lot just stay silent forever. There’s a lot of us out there in the world right now walking around, going to jobs we don’t like, that we do not feel fulfilled, we’re creating anxiety […] a world of anxiety where you are not allowed to be the full spectrum of who you are.

I think we gotta make some room for people to say stupid stuff sometimes because, at the end of the day, what we can’t deny as Black people is that white privilege has been going on for so long that there is an unconsciousness.
