  • I think this is one of the most powerful images in the history of sport. US Olympians Tommie Smith (Gold) and John Carlos (Bronze) raise gloved fists on the podium at the '68 Games to stand up to the racial injustice that Black people were (and still are) facing in the US and around the world. They took off their shoes and stood in socks to bring attention to the plight of Black poverty back home, wore beads around their neck to protest lynchings and, along with Peter Norman the Australian who won silver, wore patches of the Olympic Project for Human Rights - a group that Smith and Carlos helped organize as a way to reflect their Black pride and social conciousness. Norman was essentially cancelled by the Australian Olympic Committee for standing in solidarity with Smith and Carlos. Despite qualifying for multiple subsequent Olympic Games as the #1 Australian in the world the country instead chose not to send a sprinter at all and refused to recognize his accomplishments until 2012, six years after his death. Smith and Carlos were booed off the podium, kicked out of the Games, suspended from Team USA and went home to death threats. 48 years later when Colin Kaepernick peacefully knelt to protest racial injustice and police brutality in the US he was blackballed from the NFL. White people, now it is all of our chance to be a Norman and to stand in solidarity with Smith, Carlos, Kaepernick and the entire disenfranchised Black community. If you can march, march! (If you're in LA join me on Sunday - see slide 3). If you can donate, donate! (See slides 4 & 5 for good suggestions on where to give your money - thanks @stephseemsok for the list). If you can't do either of those things then educate yourself! I suggest starting by watching the Racial Wealth Gap episode of "Explained" on @Netflix, it takes 15 minutes and it's incredibly eye-opening. Have difficult discussions with family members who may not understand the Black Lives Matter movement. Sign petitions, make calls and write e-mails to demand justice and help create change! Do anything but don't do nothing. All lives will matter when Black lives matter. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

  • #JusticeForFloyd: Text 'Floyd' to 55156 to demand that the officers who MURDERED George Floyd are charged for their heinous crime. Sadly what happened to George Floyd is not an isolated incident. I see videos almost every day of police brutality, racial injustice, discrimination and hate in this country. And somehow some people still don't think we have a race problem. To my white friends: please don't stay silent because silence is complicity. Let's recognize our privilege and speak up on behalf of the inequality and stand up for those who have been disenfranchised. We need justice, we need accountability and we need real leadership in this country which I believe will start with a much needed change in the White House this November. We need to come together to make sure that Trump does not get another four years in office. Though he has not created these problems in America he has stoked the fires and furthered the divides and it needs to stop. #BlackLivesMatter

  • I know I've been MIA for the past month and a half but tbh this whole thing has been really hard on me. I know has been a struggle for most everyone. One thing I've learned is that just because we're in isolation it does NOT mean that we're alone. We really are in this together! If you're struggling w/ depression and you've been feeling down and worthless know that I have been too. In school, in sports and in life I've always hated asking for help because I've wanted to seem strong, brave, tough, self-assured, etc but I've realized that sometimes you just need help and when you do you need to ask for it. It's literally what friends are for. Swallow your pride and text a friend saying "I'm feeling really down, can you talk?" It will help. I'm thankful for my friends and all of you for being my support system; I'm thankful for the people who have used this time to create fun, funny content that has made me laugh and offered levity amidst the darkness; I'm thankful for my health and, most especially, I'm thankful for my family. We had some serious scares this past month and it's put into perspective, more than ever before, the importance of family. My 9-month-old nephew, Bodhi, had a bad cough/ fever and started having trouble breathing. He ended up being flight for life'd to Denver Children's Hospital to be put on a respirator and spent a week in the ICU. Shortly after he returned home my 4-year-old niece, Bobbie, fell ill and had to be rushed to the same hospital to undergo two emergency surgeries. They're both finally home again and recovering! I'm incredibly thankful and forever grateful to our healthcare workers on the front line of this pandemic. I can't show my gratitude enough but, in an effort to help out, I've decided to join Cameo to make personalized videos for anybody who wants one w/ 100% of my proceeds going to #FirstRespondersFirst to raise money for the doctors & nurses risking their lives to save others. If you wanna buy a video there's a link in my bio and I'll match whatever we raise up to $10,000! Thank you all for staying home to help flatten the curve and also for reading my unsolicited novel of a caption. Let's #BeatTheVirus ❀️
