What we can do to fight racism
If you don’t know what to do or what to say, sign a petition, donate, educate yourself, support our friends.
We can make the world better together.
I believe that together we can make the world a better place for every single one of us to live.
Even by doing tiny little things, they will eventually make a big difference if we all do our best together.
Our voices matter for those who need them.
I personally have been doing things I can do to support by signing petitions, donating and educating myself on anti-racism by reading, watching, openly talk about it with my friends.
I have gathered some informations for you to do the same, so that we can learn, educate ourselves, grows a person and support our friends together.

Books to read
This is the book I am currently reading. I’m still at the begging of the book but I think this is a very good read.
I read this a long time ago, and am intending to read this again. The story is about a white lawyer defends a black guy who is innocent but accused of violence against a white girl, and is set in the 1930s.
These are the books I am intending to read when I finish reading the current one.
Movies and documentaries to watch
Watching 13th was an eye opening for me to know how the US government is still targeting innocent black people in recent years. It was quite hard to watch and believe that the system in the US works the way it is, but was very educational.
This is a true and sad reality that happened to a black transgender woman, Marsha. Growing up in the millennial generation, I thought racism and sexism were something that is already in the past, but many people still face the reality of them like Marsha.
This is a film version of To Kill a Mockingbird. The book has more details in the contexts, story and characters etc. but the film is also a very good watch.
This is actually not a documentary, but the series cover things like racism, sexism etc. that existed in the 1940s. It highlights how hard for POC and gay people to get in the movie industry was and watching the characters overcome and achieve their dreams despite all the negativities they were facing was moving in a very heart warming way.
I wrote my thoughts on anti-racism on one of my blog posts here.
