Black Lives Matter. Here Are Some Resources. – Learn, Help & Donate
We believe it’s important to support the African American community and would love to continue to share their stories, encourage you to stream their music, & support their businesses. Rapzilla wants to help usher in some of these tough conversations & also try to lead by example of what we can to continue to rally against social injustice.
The Christian Hip-Hop community is filled with beautiful diversity & within this genre, we want to help spread unity.
We encourage everyone reading this to support & reflect. Rapzilla would also love for you to let us know of other black organizations, charities, or unique businesses that we can collaborate or work with, and/or provide mentorship to the African American community concerning the music business or business management. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. God Bless You All & Remain Steadfast.

There are so many groups organizing across the country to dismantle white supremacy. We put together a page with several of those orgs so you can split a contribution between them, in the hopes that it makes it easy for you to take action. https://t.co/VRwzwn3DFj

How do I know if I have made an idol out of my politics?
When you see the war on racism as a battle of the left vs the right
INSTEAD of the kingdom of God vs the Kingdom of darkness.

This is bigger than just racism or individual sins, this is about the institutional and systemic oppression from a nation towards a people group, dating back centuries.

We believe in the power of story. #JustMercy is one resource we can offer to those who are interested in learning more about the systemic racism that plagues our society. For the month of June, #JustMercy will be available to rent for free on digital platforms in the US. @eji_org pic.twitter.com/3B2IHMNk7E
