You're not going to fix this because, and I can't believe I have to say this but, systemic racism is not about you. You want answers? Then just hold still, be quiet, and really listen to the people you say you want to help. It's not revolutionary, it's not going to be a quick fix. And if you can't handle that than you're not an ally at all. You're just another semi-woke white liberal with a white savior complex.
