Welcome back! Today I’m making a come back after taking a year hiatus & supporting my brethren Jordan Yebe of Racism Die. Jordan launched Racism Die in October of 2017. Jordan describes the Racism Die movement as a”brand created to unify the human race.” Being that this is such a crucial topic, I had to join the movement, in an effort to further advance humanity.
Being that I am a 23 year old African American male, I’m sure it does not come as a surprise that I have had to look racism right in it’s face on multiple occasions. This is not a new unjust or a trend, but more so a fight that has yet to be won. Growing up I had the privilege of attending school with a multitude of races and I was raised to just be polite to everyone regardless of any demographics. I ventured on into adulthood knowing that there were truly people who carried a strong hate for me simply because of the color of my skin, but I never understood why. Today I still don’t understand the overall reasons behind being a racist, especially when there are so many beautiful souls that we have the privilege of connecting with.
Granted racism makes no sense, it is very clear to me that it is my duty, along with the rest of society to make progression. There are plenty of ways to make progression, the Racism Die brand just uses fashion to do so. I actually wore the shirt out to a local market and the responses to the shirt were surprising to say the least. I honestly expected to get a few eye rolls or no reactions at all. Upon making my way through the market, I began to notice quite a few double takes, a few smiles, and even some compliments. Granted everyone didn’t bombard me to inquire on how they too could own a Racism Die tee, it did feel good to serve as reminder that we are all we have and that love is the ultimate answer. Support the movement here.
