Many people have said many things on this subject. What I am going to do is take action and do something small on an ongoing basis.
I am making a promise to my self, and to the few hundred people who read my blog every month, to make sure that after #blacklivesmatter is no longer trending, I keep the conversation alive.
I pledge to take at least a minute to talk about systemic racism in almost every meeting I host, and with permission of the host, almost every meeting that I attend as a guest.
I promise to do my tiny part in at least getting the conversation started, and keep it going. #blacklivesmatter
