“White privilege is like being a fish in water. You are the fish, and the water is your privilege. You are so steeped in it, you cannot even see it.”

– Robbin Carroll

SimplyBe. had a full content calendar for the beginning of June, before Jessica cancelled everything. The only subject that needs to be addressed at this time, both through Jessica’s personal platform and that of SimplyBe., is racial justice—and injustice.

The following is an excerpt of a recent blog post on the same subject.

I recognize that as a white woman with a platform, I have an obligation to do more than simply share a podcast like this. I would like to instead use this as an opportunity to encourage action. Here are some of the steps I am taking and encourage my community to consider as well:

Here is one last piece of truth: talking about this topic is uncomfortable, which is precisely why I have not done so in the past. That is no longer an excuse for my complacency and my silence. Nor is the fear that as a white person I might say the wrong thing or feel awkward in saying it. We need to nonetheless embrace this work with our full dedication to doing better and being better. Not just now in this time of unrest. Not when the news cycle fades and the protests end. But forever and always. This is my commitment to the BIPOC community.

I hope you will join me.

With Humility, with Sincerity, and always, with Light,
