I am a woman with a body. For that I offer no explanation, shame, excuse or apology. In a culture obsessed with women shrinking, confidence is controversial. It is courage. I’m taking my peace back.

12 Ways to Be a White Ally to Black People

iwriteaboutfeminism:

1. Learn about the racialized history of Ferguson and how it reflects the racialized history of America.

2. Reject the “He was a good kid” or “He was a criminal” narrative and lift up the “Black lives matter” narrative.

3. Use words that speak the truth about the disempowerment, oppression, disinvestment and racism that are rampant in our communities.

4. Understand the modern forms of race oppression and slavery and how they are intertwined with policing, the courts and the prison-industrial complex.

5. Examine the interplay between poverty and racial equity.

6. Diversify your media. 

7. Adhere to the philosophy of nonviolence as you resist racism and oppression.

8. Find support from fellow white allies.

9. If you are a person of faith, look to your Scriptures or other holy texts for guidance. 

10. Don’t be afraid to be unpopular.

11. Be proactive in your own community. 

12. Don’t give up.
