2020 has truly been the year of "wow did that just happen". Recent events have clearly cited the need for a sustained focus on issues that affect black people by non-black people. For far too long the black community have been subjected to systematic failure after failure from it's so-called allies but a recent drive for introspection and clear systematic racial-auditing have yielded a sense that things may finally be changing. Change however cannot be tokenistic nor can it be a single black square, a well written instagram post or a link to randomly selected organisation that non-black people can support. Change needs to come in the form of family and community conversational-activism which centres itself on dismantling stereotypical views of black people and the unlearning of centuries of unconscious bias and racism.
