Prosperity isn’t a zero sum game. Must listen: BLM teachers, books, and podcasts.

There are some really great teachers and authors out there that educate beautifully, lovingly, and fiercely on Black Lives Matter.
It’s up to us to catch up and to dismantle systemic racism. Prosperity is not a zero sum game. In fact, the well-being of every human is so interwoven together that it behooves us all to make this top priority. In the end, who are we if we can’t feel the pain of others enough to do something about it, and if we don’t want to lift others up in the same way we’ve been given that privilege? Let’s stop defending ourselves, stop judging derivative crimes, check our predispositions, and start seeing how we can make change.
