CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Before we can dream of a new world, the truth of what is must be spoken. Before creating new systems of justice, the old systems must be brought down. But people in power have a vested interest to keep the current systems in place. In fact, some empower will seek to squash the truth in order to keep the status quo. Great energy will go to suppressing truth rather than listening.

The first step to real systemic change is listening. What do I mean by systemic? I mean that one thing is connected to another. So for instance, police brutality is connected to racism. And also to to weapons (120 handguns for every 100 people in US). All of this is connected to incarceration—or the new slavery. The US has 5% of the world’s population but over 20% of the worlds incarcerated people. And African Americans are incarcerated at more than 5x the rate of whites.

So when you see a video of a black man as a victim of violence from a police officer, you’re not just seeing 2 individuals, but a system of injustice.  So, the question is how am I maintaining the status quo, the current systems of injustice?  How do I benefit from them?  What fears do I have if they change?  How is that an obstacle to speaking the truth and working for justice?  Why am I not being honest?
