I’m About to Shake The System: Black Sherif on the Importance of speaking up and being heard
If you asked the average person how much of an impact they think they have on the world, their answer would probably be none.
They think that just by living their lives and going about the business of their days, they are insignificant.
And sure, we’re all pretty insignificant when you compare us to planets or solar systems or other galaxies, but our voices add up.
We all have something to say, and we all have opinions on what we think should be done to make the world a better place.
Why it’s so important
In a world that is constantly trying to silence black voices, it is more important than ever to speak up and be heard. Black Sherif’s song I’m about to shake the system is a powerful anthem for anyone who has ever felt oppressed or silenced.
The lyrics are an empowering call to action, urging people to stand up and fight for what they believe in. This song is a reminder that our voices are powerful and we must use them to effect change.
How to speak out
In a world that constantly tells us to be quiet, it can be hard to find our voices. But it’s so important that we do. Here are five tips on how to speak out and be heard:
1. Share your expertise

3. Shake off hesitation
4. Push boundaries, challenge authority
5. Interact as an equal
