"I feel annoyed when issues about my community arise and I am not asked to help cover them, yet tokenized if I am singled out for that coverage. This is only true because there aren’t enough Black journalists in the room." -

I've heard from so many friends--one spoke through sobs--who are barely managing to do their jobs while caring for young kids. They're operating on little sleep, struggling w/ depression. One is leaving her job. We need to be talking more about how to support parents, esp. women.

So long as the Kenney administration tolerates law enforcement that turns a blind eye to violent white men, removing the monuments that they “guard” won’t solve or eradicate white backlash. It will only push it from one lightning rod to the next.

You act as if you’ll get to what’s happening to us one day, but our lives can’t wait! And the thing is, the same transphobia that fuels your inaction, your silence, is the same transphobia that brutally attacks us. It’s a spectrum of violence.

Every single U.S. industry is about to roil under revelations about the ubiquity of racism. The measure of decency will not be how well they defend against the charges but whether they are willing to listen and act in meaningful ways. Put down the shield, open the windows.

the sad truth about this wave of media reckonings is that it feels way too late — so many talented Black journalists and media creators chose their sanity and moved on. grieving for all their careers / stories.

And let’s get serious about this. Please consider when your publication might just need a leadership overhaul.

I have been complicit & haven’t spoken up enough, and I regret it. Change should not have to come so slowly, and anyone trying to enact it shouldn’t have to endure years of resistance or wait until they’re no longer working somewhere to see it. (cont.)

journalism career might have been, & how different Philly Mag would be, if that team remained. Everything Fabiola says here is absolutely right, & any non-Black person who works in journalism in Philly & beyond needs to read it and enact change within their own newsrooms (cont.)

Sure, difference in terms of symbolism. Hoping for more measures that get at the underlying system that allowed for and continues to allow for leaders like Rizzo. And curious to see what will replace Rizzo statue/mural...
