Dear Women of Color Who Are Told to Be Nicer to White “Allies”
Threads of Solidarity: WOC Against Racism

Thank you. I appreciate it when anyone says with direct honesty (not meanness) where they are coming from, and that’s what you did. 
I also know that this wasn’t written for me, a white person, but since you’re already getting chided by people who I’m guessing are white, I want to throw in my appreciation for your message. Since my liberation is bound up with everyone else’s I want us all to be strong and sure in ourselves, and not rely on wishful thinking.
