Educating myself

I have been watching these shows, movies, relevant to the ongoing movement on black lives matter. There is a lot to learn, a lot to understand, a lot to feel. As an Indian person, sitting in the UK, watching what’s happening in America, I can only say that I am not well apprised to put across the right words. I see the protests, I read the dialogues, I hear the enraged voices. What’s happening to black people doesn’t feel right. It appears to be wrong at a very basic level.

I have watched some really interesting things on Netflix so far:

– 13th

– When they see us

– 12 Years a slave

– What Happened, Miss Simone?

– Dear White People

– Sweet Karamo in the Queer Eye(this one is just to feel good)

Some things are too difficult to watch, but I think we need to see them even if it makes us uncomfortable. It’s the reality a large group of people have lived for so long. And we can’t put a blind eye on it.

A movement is on the uprising, and I wish the next decade is a wave of progressive change in our world.
