It’s June. If you’re involved in corporate rainbows this month, consider this.
Because I am finding it hard to provide answers right now, I have been reminding myself to ask more questions about the work and the worlds over which I have influence:
- who is this for?
- who does this help?
- who will this harm?
- who will use this for harm?
- how will this be used for harm?
- how do the answers (or lack thereof) to the above change our approach?
What are your questions?
I am not sure if there are always answers, but there is power in the asking.

“i can’t stand your ground. i’m sick of calling your recklessness the law. each night, i count my brothers. & in the morning, when some do not survive to be counted, i count the holes they leave. i reach for black folks & touch only air. your master magic trick, America. now he’s breathing, now he don’t. abra-cadaver. white bread voodoo. sorcery you claim not to practice, hand my cousin a pistol to do your work.” - from dear white america by Danez Smith
