The year 2020 will not just be remembered for the pandemic. It will also be remembered for George Floyd and his final words 'I can't breathe' as he lay dying, the knee of a Minnesota police officer on his neck. The incomprehensible killing of Floyd, a father of two, shone a light yet again on the pervasive racism experienced by the black community all over the world. The protests in America saw people express collective outrage and solidarity. In Dublin thousands gathered to do the same, kneeling together in silence and calling for an end to the Direct Provision System. It's not good enough, as political activist Angela Davis said, to not be racist. We need to be anti-racist. And we need to talk about what that means. Three young black Irish women Amanda Adewole, Tobi Lawal and Felicia Olusanya aka Felispeaks came on the podcast to discuss their experiences of everyday racism, the events in America and the ways in which white people, with all of the privilege we benefit from because of the colour of our skin, can become part of the solution rather than the problem.
