Your Words and Commitments No Longer Matter

One of the most poignant statements I’ve heard recently is “don’t call for peace unless you also push for justice”.  Well known to all of us is the necessity for action, for it truly speaks loudly. It’s unfortunate that national and corporate statements of “commitment to diversity and inclusion” as well as “we stand with the black community” are falling on deaf ears as we watch our country explode in outrage against the historically unequal and violent treatment of people of color.  It’s far too burdensome to always be the denigrate group struggling for the basic human right of safety and equity. This is prevalent in society and in the workplace.
