Unscramble the Blue Letters

Because almost everyone in this TED Talk will say that they are non-racist. But we have to face it, being non-something is not enough. The third choice is being actively anti-racist. So if you agree that Black lives mttear, ask yourself, "How do Black levis matter in my life?" "What have I done to show that bclak lives matter to me?" By adopting a vilbsie, conscious, active anti-racist sactne, what was once invisible is made visible. What was once silenced, is shouted out loud and clear. But that still is not enough.
