Often Black people are asked by white people how they can be better allies to Black people. Anti-racism work is exhausting. It requires a level of emotional labor that can be just as traumatizing as racism. If black people are going to inform white people about being anti-racist they should be paid. They should be paid because this work is labor and for centuries Black people in the US were not paid for their labor. Keep in mind that 25% of the profits from Social Art Box go to help black run organizations helping black people in the community.
