Here’s a rainbow we saw on our travels this week, directly overhead!
Despite more people than ever staying home, police violence against Black people continues just as it has since the country was founded. People have reached a tipping point and are collectively standing up for justice because black lives matter.
Remember the campsite rule: leave your site better than you found it. What can you do to leave this world better than you found it? The RV community (especially the RV community online) has a whiteness problem, and we need to change that. Find outdoorsy accounts/blogs/channels run by Black folks and follow them. Challenge 10-year age limits at RV parks (which disproportionately affects lower income RVers, and lower income people are more likely to be people of color). Reconsider your RV park reviews complaining about “long term residents” which is often code for “poor people” (who are more likely to be people of color). If you have a rowdy neighbor of any color, instead of calling the police or management and inviting a potential incident, walk over there, say hello, and ask them to turn it down.
Let’s look out for each other.
We can do better. We must do better.
