My privilege allows me to go further within an industry that is entirely characterised by black culture—that is a disgusting paradox—and goes for anyone else white in my position. The scenes that have been unfolding recently are far from the celebration that black people deserve.
I understand that I have a platform to affect these injustices and I’ll be commited to doing so. But there are people and institutions that have the power to change the music industry and society far more than I can, now is the time to put pressure on those to alter the way they operate and create a real structural shift.
I donated to various organisations that fight against racism and police brutality via ActBlue and The Stephen Lawrence Fund directly. If you have the ability to support these organisations then please do. blackouttuesday
