Dear fellow humans. These are extraordinary times. We are not living in anything close to ‘normal’ circumstances. It cannot be life as usual. We are emerging from Covid-19 lockdowns – a great equaliser. Then, the George Floyd moment assaulted us.
After seeing and listening to Don Lemon and Lewis Hamilton call out those who are silent, I add my voice to unequivocally state:
- I abhor racism, injustice, violence and inequality of any kind.
- Black lives matter.
We support the peaceful protests and social movements against injustice, violence, and inequality – especially the kind that is carried out disproportionately towards people of colour, the poor, the disenfranchised. I look forward to a world where we have unity, peace and equality, because we fundamentally understand, protect and respect ourselves, our fellow humans and our home, planet Earth.
