Dear White Allies: Don’t Appropriate Our Anger
Excerpt from the article…
Note to white allies: When you beat up on your fellow white people for being ignorant about racism, you are NOT HELPING. Those naïve white people just waking up to racial justice? That want to do the right thing but are saying the wrong thing because they were just born to the struggle yesterday?
They are YOUR JOB #1. YOU are supposed to empathize with their white fragility, get them past their self-centering feels, and bring them over to the right side of history.
Why? SO PEOPLE OF COLOR DON’T HAVE TO.
