Fair is useless, why not

“Fair” is a useless concept and it is often an unhelpful narrative. What is fair is is hugely at variance from 100 years ago.

Our society tolerates gross unfairness every day. It tolerates misogyny, racism and the careless indifference to those born without privilege.

We have to remember that change is not made by shouting “unfair”. It is a hard and slow work of understanding, trust and commitment.

Fair has come a long way and it is made possible by people no smarter than you. We share stories of a different future, of how things could be better, of how to do it, one person at a time. We show up.

Fair is not a complaint. Fair is work. Fair because it is better.

Thank you Daryl Davis for showing me a different way.
