One last time…on performative allyship

Don’t you think this approach might be counterproductive? Biting the hands of anyone who tries to help, tries to empathize. Do you want people to think twice about saying anything because they’ll be attacked by the people they’re empathizing with? Do you really want white people to just shut up and say nothing? I feel like I need to speak up — not because I have any guilt for what other people with skin like mine have done, but because I see that what’s happening is wrong and I will speak up against injustice. Please don’t make it harder for people to do the right thing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
