The latest instalment for out Graduates edition.
We’re not done yet. Support shouldn’t tone up and down with hype.
In the past few weeks, more than ever, we’re learning to realise our privileges, flaws and responsibilities. We stand in solidarity with those who fight against white supremacy. We are researching ways to create and amplify more diversity in our community, structurally, and use our position in a more substantial and helpful manner, structurally. We would like to use our platform to shine some extra light on a handful of initiatives fighting white supremacy.
Please consider signing petitions, donating and making use of resources to educate yourself and others via the links below. Thanks to all creating and running these initiatives.
Patia Borja of legendary meme-page @patiasfantasyworld created a community-sourced database to help her followers – and the internet at large – fight systemic racism and white supremacy. “A master list guide to help dismantle racism”. Enter here.
“As a response to prevalent racial injustices around our country, I’ve decided to create a community sourced database to help my followers – and the internet at large – fight systemic racism and white supremacy. I started Patia’s Fantasy World as a private page to share humor, focused on black culture, with my close friends. Eventually, I made the page public and amassed a following. With help from a close network of friends and colleagues, as well as several sleepless nights, I created a master list guide to help dismantle racism. Through my platform, the guide has been circulated around the internet, reaching a number of people I never imagined. Due to the overwhelming response, we have turned the master list into a website that we hope will continue to foster awareness and support for the Black Lives Matter movement. With love, Patia”
