Statement against racism

From the desk of Chelsea West, CEO of Scrappy Crone -

Scrappy Crone is an INTERSECTIONAL organization and movement.

 

I recognize the privilege I have as a white woman in America. 

Even as a Queer-identifying person, someone who is only "cis-ish", and a person who has lived below the poverty line my entire life - I still have a massive amount of privilege based solely on the color of my skin. I fully acknowledge that the given privilege is NOT based on equity or justice, but instead that it is based  ENTIRELY ON SYSTEMIC RACISM.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

RACISM

IS

SHITTY.

It is absolutely necessary to acknowledge the existence of racism. With ignorance, no change can come. Exposing my own privilege is a tool to create cognitive shifts in myself and others. Exposing the systemic racism that is alive and well in the United States of America is a core part of my mission as an artist and as a human.

 

Here at Scrappy Crone, we don't stand for it. 

The entire artistic vision, mission, collaboration, creative muse, and experience of Scrappy Crone explicitly condemns White Supremacy.

Period.
