BLACK LIVES MATTER

I’m a white women who owns a beauty brand and I recognize that I need to do better. You need to do better. We all need to do better. I’m also a daughter of a retired policeman and have felt that my voice maybe be inappropriate to speak out BUT this is where the problem lies. By thinking I don’t want to insult anyone since I can’t relate. I’ve allowed and stood by while serve injustices have been taking place. No more. I know this isn’t right. I’ve always know this and these aren’t my values to let people be treated so horrifically. ⁣

I see you, I mourn with you & I will fight for you. ⁣

Everyone’s voices need to be heard. Enough is enough and it has been for a long time. That fact it takes seeing a black man with his arms behind his back being murdered on camera to finally demand things to change is shameful on all our parts. I’m disgusted and sickened to my stomach.⁣

The opportunity of this pandemic brought ways for us all to connect like we haven’t ever before. To be one fighting against a common threat and together to achieve 1 global goal. ⁣

As Canadians we like to say well that’s in the US and not here. NEWSFLASH it is. Our indigenous & Black community need all of our support to say I see you, I mourn with you & I will fight for you. ⁣

The events that have been taking place aren’t new. Just finally being captured on camera. I need to do better. You need to do better. We all need to do better. ⁣

We all worthy no matter the colour of our skin, economical background, faith & mental capacity. Privilege isn’t for those who can afford it but to speak out and defend those who can’t. ⁣

I see you, I mourn with you & I will fight for you. ⁣
