Some ACTIONS we can take to address racism #Repost @soulpancake . ・・・ joy is powerful, but what is it without the acknowledgment of justice? hi, i’m alex, i make “small joys” every week as both a personal practice + because i love sharing with you. but at this time, as a white person, to be silent is to be complicit. and to be complicit fuels white supremacy + anti-blackness. we must make it our daily work to be anti-racist, to become aware of our unconscious biases, to actively unlearn + to dismantle the oppressive systems in place. white supremacy, racism in any form + anti-blackness begins and ends with white people. full stop. this is not easy work + we must get comfortable getting uncomfortable. there is no quick fix and no one else can do this work bringing forth systemic change. we must have these difficult conversations with others + ourselves regularly + frequently. and we must begin now. here are some actions we can take. small actions by // @alexandrasnaps
I’m talking about mental health today at 3pm pacific with @namicommunicate
I’m horrified and heartbroken about #GeorgeFloyd . When are we as a nation going to TRULY address the issues of race and institutional anti-blackness that are tearing this country apart? My heart goes out to every last one of us.

So a friend of mine who teaches at UCLA did a workshop on “difficult emotions” as part of a campus-wide psychological training and the mnemonic they used was MY NAME!!! Have no idea why. But I found it quite funny and kind of cool. Definitely fed my narcissism. And, when I really look at it, the message at the center of thing is pretty effin’ cool. So, dearest Instagram readers, when faced with a difficult or over-whelming emotion, remember: What would R.A.I.N.N. do?
Great lineup this week for #HEYTHEREHUMAN on @Soulpancake instagram live! Every weekday at noon! This week @ParisaFitzHenley and @NickOfferman PLUS a special mystery guest on Monday. Also global education superstar Sal Kahn of @KahnAcademy and from the FRONT LINES, Dr Lindsay Lief! PLUS PLUS interviews with random human beings randomly plucked from the depths of the internet!
Going for a run today of 2.23 miles to honor and support the memory of Ahmaud Arbery. #IRunWithMaud BUT, these kind of armchair/social media responses are not enough. We have to do something about the outrageous and heartbreaking shootings of unarmed black men in our “free” country. #HashTagsAreNotEnough I will be making a donation to the Georgia branch of the ACLU ( @ACLUofGA ) because that’s all I can think of to do right now. If you want to see the face of terrorism in the United States right now, just look at the faces of the men who did this horrific, cowardly act. And why did it take Georgia over 2 months to do anything about this crime?!
