As the world begins to respond to ongoing systemic racism against the Black community across the globe, many of us may find ourselves feeling the urgency to help, to post, to learn, and to be and do better.
How can we channel this online advocacy beyond social media, beyond voting polls, and across different countries?
One way is to be conscious of how we are spending, and who we are supporting, and by buying, hiring, contracting and spending on Black-owned businesses.
Indians are the wealthiest minority in America, and one way we can help is by better allocating our money to support Black communities beyond the online movement.
In order to rebuild systems and establish new normals based on the principle of equality, we must invest in communities that have been historically oppressed and marginalized, and move our support to the next level.
