Black Lives Matter
I am white.
I am a female.
I am a Psychologist.
I have privilege.
I don't know what it is like to be a person of color...
To experience microaggressions on a daily basis due to the color of my skin...
To fear for my life during traffic stops/walking outside/being in my own home...
To presume I know what it is like diminishes the real atrocities and inequalities that POC, especially our black communities, experience on a constant basis.
I stand with you.
As a white, female Psychologist, I stand with you.
I will continue to use my voice, and educate (myself and others) to help create change.
I will continue to openly discuss race and culture and inequalities with my clients.
I will continue to be an active agent of change.
I will continue to stand with you.
