RidzDesign Presents "Third Voice" - Featuring: Calligrafist [Video]



Starring: Calligrafist

Shot and Directed By: Ridwan Adhami

Words From The Director Below:

Are we talking about race and racism in our communities?
Are we talking about judgment and assumptions?
Are we addressing the issues we have within our own homes?
Are we serious when we say we don't hate or discriminate?
THAT is why I made this...
Because the first time I met this brother a little racist Arab inside me thought wow that black kid's Arabic is so good... and I paused and questioned myself... why did I just think that? That's why I made this...
I had the idea that night and walked up to him right afterwards and spoke to him about it... that was over 5 years ago...
We still aren't having those conversations in our community...
We are still having issues letting our sons and daughters marry black brothers and sisters...
We are outraged when innocent light skinned people are killed... and the whole community joins together to stand up against the injustice...
Why do we not stand up together to fight the injustice of our own people against our own people?
We can never truly realize that all lives matter until we realize that ‪#‎BLACKLIVESMATTER‬...
