EXPLORE this detailed guide, called
Justice in June3, on how you can incorporate 10, 25, or 45 minutes dedicated
to how you can stay informed as an ally
of Black communities. 
READ literature that exposes you to new
language and new ideas. I am currently
reading 1) The New Jim Crow. Other
works that will help you engage include
2) Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of
Medical Experimentation on Black Americans
from Colonial Times to Present by Harriet A.
Washington 3) So You Want to Talk About
Race by Ileome Oluo 4) Women, Race, & Class
by Angela Y. Davis 5) Fatal Invention: How
Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create
Race in the Twenty-First Century by Dorothy
Roberts, and most importantly 6) White
Fragility by Robin DiAngelo (here is a link
to the audiobook4, which you can listen
to for FREE).
DONATE to organizations that matter
including 1) Black Lives Matter5 2) Justice
for Breonna Taylor 6 3) George Floyd
Memorial Fund 7 4) North Star Health
Collective8 (They work in alliance with
anti-authoritarian organizations to provide
safe and healthy spaces. Their medics are
on the front lines helping protestors.) 5)
NAACP Legal Defense Fund9; they fight
for equality and justice for black people
by providing legal counsel.
CALL your local and national representatives to voice your concerns! I discovered
this anti-racism packet10 through advocacy
circles, which teaches you tangible stepby-step actions you can take right now to
help Black communities. There are scripts
exemplifying what to say when you call 1)
a senator's office to complain about unchecked police brutality 2) the DC mayor's
office to comment on racist police violence
during protests or 3) the Minneapolis Public
Schools deciding whether or not to renew
contracts with MPD.
"ENGAGE the change" has been my
motto. There has never been a more
prescient time to have uncomfortable
conversations with yourself, your friends,
and your/our family members about racism
and racial bias in America. I found this
10 Summer 2020 Central PA Medicine

article11 to be helpful in offering suggestions
to have healthy but difficult conversations
about race and inequality. If you don't
know where to start the conversation, this
article12 provides talking points such as on
privilege, protests, and police. Remember,
there is no growth without discomfort. To
help walk through it with grace, we can
actively practice tolerance13.
Dr. Sidorov: Dr. Poles, final thoughts?
Dr. Poles: Back Lives Matter is only
controversial because it makes white America uncomfortable and has been twisted
to give white America an excuse to avoid
the  reality of structural  and institutionalized racism. Martin Luther King was
called a "socialist" and "agitator" amongst
other defamatory names. He was haunted
by the FBI, etc. Yes, transgender and sexism
are real issues in America which also need
to be addressed. However, this moment
is not about anything other than the fact
that black bodies are not valued in white
America and most of white America has
just awakened to that uncomfortable fact;
to the fact that silence equals complicity at
the least and violence in the extreme. That
is what makes this both critical to address
in its entirety, with no distraction from
the issue; it's extremely uncomfortable. I,
as most African Americans, are weary of
the issue of systemic and institutionalized
racism in America being pushed aside or
being "part of the conversation." The time
for being "part of the conversation" versus
"The Conversation" is over. 
"They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a
Communist. Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and
I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade
unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a
Protestant. Then they came for me, and by
that time no one was left to speak up."
