Thandi Nkomo & I met through social media. I had a conversation with Brett Fish about #NotOnOurWatch - a movement looking to actively call people out on racism. Brett dives deep into taboo conversations and Thandi values allies like Brett who are willing to speak loudly against structural problems. I was voicing concern that when our prejudices are pointed out, we tend to fight back rather than listening. I am worried about how much vitriol is being thrown around. Brett and I chatted about attempts to befriend rather than shutting down people we had issue with. Thandi wanted to make it clear that she needed loud voices like Brett's. She needs their roar. She believes people are more likely to listen to the roar of those more like them. That that roar will shock them into awareness. I had no intention of getting Brett to silence his voice. I think we can chip away at our ignorance and prejudice through as many approaches as possible. Thandi also has a roar. Here she directs it at those who believe in borders to keep people out.
