Message on Israel & Palestine War
I am sure that we are all aware of what is happening in Gaza. If you are not aware, we highly suggest that you educate yourself through books, social media resources, and reliable news sources. Afroblisso is a Black-owned business and there is no way we can be for standing up against systematic racism, injustice, apartheid, and genocide without acknowledging the genocide that is happening to Palestinians right now. It has been happening for decades and it is not fair to stand neutral and call for peace without acknowledging the long history.
Now, Israel has imposed a complete siege on Gaza by cutting off water, electricity, and supplies. As we prepare for Black Friday and Christmas, we want to inform you that 15% of our profits from our holiday sales will be donated to the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. We encourage others to donate and/or find other ways to support Palestine.
Lastly, if you are interested in learning more about Black solidarity with Palestinians (AND the history of solidarity with Jews), see below for a few gems that we would recommend!
