很遺憾在上個月初傳出分手的卡拉迪樂芬妮與艾希莉班森，兩人不約而同參加抗議遊行。卡拉戴著髮帶以及彩虹背帶，手舉著「BLACK LIVES MATTER」的牌子，寫下「前進了一小步，但還有很長一段路要走。」（One step forward, but a long way to go.）前女友艾希莉班森則PO出「不是暴動，是革命。」（Not A Riot,A Revolution.）的標語，並鼓勵大家可以捐款或是連署請願書。

This movement is powerful. And necessary. It’s overdue. ⠀ ⠀ I am white, I am privileged. I will never experience what black people in America go through every single day, but I am listening and I am learning. I march with you and will fight with you. This is just the beginning, but it’s a small step towards changing the system. ⠀ ⠀ The layers of this fight are endless — but one layer we must talk about is passive racism. NOT saying something makes you part of the problem. Silence is violence. I have been part of the problem. I’m ashamed and embarrassed to admit this but recognizing it is important. And I understand that I need to try my best to rectify that now by moving through the shame and speaking up and out even if it makes people I know feel uncomfortable.⠀ ⠀ I have learned so much in the last few months and last few days about how problematic and dangerous being quiet and non-confrontational is. We have to be better allies. ⠀ ⠀ Now that we’re here, I keep asking myself and asking others: How do we move forward? How do I, as a white person, do better?⠀ ⠀ Educate yourself. Learn the history behind the outrage.⠀ ⠀ Be vocal. This can be on social media, this can be at protests — but that’s not all. The most impactful thing we can do right now is have meaningful conversations with our friends, family who might not understand the nuances of being anti- racist. Stand firm in that you are on the right side of this. ⠀ ⠀ Take action. Donate to causes that are working toward ending violence and working to undo the laws that hold up an very flawed system. Support black businesses. Support black creatives. I will add organizations I’m supporting in my stories if this is helpful as a jumping off point. ⠀ ⠀ We have failed in so many ways throughout the history of this country, and enough is enough. Don’t let your own shame silence you. ⠀ ⠀ With love, I urge you, as young people especially, to actively join in and help create change...
