Thought for today 24.06.20

#BlackLivesMatter This month we shall be recording responses made to the killing of George Floyd on 25th May. Too many black people have died at the hands of state racism, institutional racism – and individual racism stoked by the first two.  We can all work together to turn the tide of racism. It will be a long and difficult struggle – but George Floyd’s death has brought many young people into that fight. We may yet change the world. Should we name 25th May as George Floyd day, to ensure that we never forget?

“Until we dismantle the systemic racism that exists in society we are never going to make the progress that we need to see.  We have to have these uncomfortable conversations to see the change we want.”
