How to Easily be a White Ally to Marginalized Communities

Thank you so much for suggesting people try matzo ball soup, or go to a synagogue. The appreciation comes from not including us Jews (never call a Jewish person a Jew unless you yourself are Jewish by the way) in with the ‘White People”. Although many of us are Caucasian and considered “White” we are not. We are our own race, and are people who have been persecuted, discriminated against, marginalized, and the victims of genocide for millennia.

Asking people who are normally immune from the ugliness of racism and discrimination to get a look at the other side is a beautiful response. Hopefully it’ll open the door to people not only ‘trying’ others’ experiences, but speaking with the Not White people and learning what it feels like to be scared for your life because you’re not like them. That empathy will be a great motivator to helping to keep everyone safe.
