Thank you for articulating my own concerns. I felt worried about this movement, but didn’t have the words to discover why, and you gave them to me. I’m white, and I want to be more than just an ally for the reasons you have outlined. A friend recently gave me the word: agitator. As a white person I can be an agitator, agitating for change and awareness in the insidious micro-details, the micro-aggressions, the choice points where white privilege is maintaining the status quo — I can do that in my own world of mostly white culture. That is what white people can do. That, and listen without reacting, without being defensive.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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