5k a day for 28 days for #BLM

Black Lives Matter.  Then, now and always.

White supremacy won't die until white people see it as a white issue they need to solve rather than a black issue they need to empathize with.

I can't pretend that I will ever understand, but I'm raising money in aid of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust - sponsor me to run 5k a day for the next 28 days - you can follow my progress on Strava: Lewys Cave


"At first I thought I should just shut up and listen to black people about this issue.

But why would I do that?

It's not their problem - it's mine.


People of colour are being failed by the system. The white system. Like a broken pipe flooding the apartment of the people living downstairs. This faulty system is making their life a misery, but it's not their job to fix it. They can't - no one will let them in the apartment upstairs.

This is a white problem. And if white people don't fix it, someone will have to come upstairs and kick the door in."

Banksy, 2020
