A MATRIX CONVERSATION WITH GERALD BOYD AND EACH OTHER

We are living in a time of unprecedented turbulence and uncertainty. George Floyd’s murder on May 25, 2020, catalyzed protests in cities and towns across the U.S. and around the world. . This ongoing movement is a collective cry for justice and accountability, for police policy replacement and for an end to systemic racism in the U.S. The horrors of systemic racism in the criminal justice and medical systems are being exposed. “Say their names”: The names and cases of countless other black and brown people who were senselessly murdered.

For those of us who are people who benefit from white privilege, this movement cannot be framed as “saving” or helping black people. Whites must peel back the veils of white privilege that result in non-action. We need to stare into the shadow of our conditioning in white supremacy which for centuries has been baked into the systems that uphold our society, whether or not we are aware of them, whether or not we agree with them. AND we need our friends and colleagues who are people of color. We need their genius, their spirit and their love. And right now, our friends need us—to come running, to take action that will result in protection, justice and equality. We need each other. WE ARE in this together.

During these times of navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and our increasingly corrupt, authoritarian and white government (think class, power and wealth), we are living in amplified fields of threat, fear and confusion. We are all vulnerable to this virus that demands we stay separate, yet we must connect to give voice. We must right the wrongs.

Everything and everyone counts. Together, our voice and impact make a difference.
