With the protests for George Floyd and all the other black lives lost going on, I haven’t been gaming much this past week. Instead I’ve been putting my energy into signing petitions, donating, writing emails, and doing whatever I can. Still, it’s not enough. And I haven’t forgotten about this blog in the midst of things. I have 3 posts sitting in my drafts right now. But I had to get this post out first.
Racism exists in every aspect of our lives, including the video game community. Today, many people are posting a black screen, mostly on Instagram, for Blackout Tuesday. This gesture is merely performative if it’s all we do. We must also lift up and support black voices, including in the video game community. So here’s where I shut up and do that. Please follow, please listen, please support.
Twitter Accounts – A lot of these accounts boost other accounts, so definitely check them out.
If there’s anything that should be included here that isn’t (and I know there is), let me know and I will add it! I wanted to get this post out quickly, but I will update, and continue adding to my indie games page.
This is the end of my post, but it isn’t *the end.* I must and will continue to support black people in the gaming community. Black Lives Matter.
