Genuine question - can you suggest some real prompts that would help? Or are you just saying don’t bring it up. People don’t always know what to say.

Click on the Instagram link. It has your answer, and then some.

Hypothesis: non-black people have had some mental whiplash this week trying to figure out what to say to their black colleagues to show that they care and want to help the cause. Person A says “do this” and Person B says “Never do that, do this instead!” I think the answer is that there is no answer. Black people are not some homogenous monolith with a single preference. They have a diverse set of opinions and feelings just like white, brown, etc. people. So maybe instead of trying to find some universal approach or one size fits all solution, we should just lead with good intentions and open hearts and adjust with any feedback we receive from the people we reach out to 🤷🏽‍♀️

Yeah sis I feel this. Some of the Options given made me cringe. Well said, thank you for this.

Agreed with EY1, earlier someone posted that they appreciated their team members reaching out to ask if they were OK. It seems like a very delicate tightrope based on personality and I want to find myself on the right side of things, but am getting very conflicted messages

No one wants to talk about this in a business setting. People can be offended so easily, that people are afraid of unintentionally saying the wrong thing, like “are you ok?”

You’re welcome C2 and it absolutely depends on your relationship with the person. Hence why there are 3 options. I think the key takeaway (ha!) from this is that’s it’s more appreciated to *say* something like the three options given rather than “I don’t know what to say”. We know you don’t. This is a wake up call (sigh) for a lot of non-Black people and I’m sure it’s akin to being forcibly pulled out of a deep sleep.

Yeah to C2’s point, naively these feel very self serving and virtue signally...
