Thank you for giving us your perspective, Gabriella. I do feel overwhelmed, often. I do feel privileged, often. I have been born a white woman in a European country. I know I’m privileged.

So often I think, what can I do? Really DO?

This quote gave me insight on what I can (and must, and will) do. And I hope many others will do too.

Vera Mulder wrote an article titled: “Why Black Lives Matter Concerns Everyone.” She quotes one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, Patrisse Cullors:

“Recognize your privilege and use that power against inequality.” — Patrisse Cullors

‘In the end, racism will not be solved by people of color, just like misogyny will not be solved by women.’ — Vera Mulder in De Correspondent.
