I've written an article for on why social investors need to move beyond silence & tokenism when it comes to racial injustice. If we can lend out weight to campaigns against social injustices why the silence, until recently, on racial injustice?

Those of us with immigrant parents can fully relate to this. It's as if our parents were always convinced that we would be tracked and found by the deep state from the remnants of our junk mail post.
