Gilead is not full of apologies

Friendly reminder that healing from white supremacy, systemic racism, and inequality is not contingent upon an oppressor's apology or their awareness of the mistake.

Healing is your right, with or without those who have caused you harm. Not only that but healing is necessary. It's more important than apologies.

I think we've conditioned ourselves to believe that until oppressors are as oppressed as they've made someone feel or are punished for that feeling, we can't heal and they can't change. Apologies are for those who have caused harm, not those affected by their harm.

Real change does not come from punishment.

Punishment is not accountability.

There is a balm in Gilead, Gilead is not full of apologies.
