Allies can be racist. Anti-racism and anti-Blackness has to be a lifetime journey that includes lifelong learning because unless you’re Black you just don’t get it. I’m not fighting with anyone, just asking White people, allies included, to investigate their White Supremacy footprints and heritages. If they can’t do this then how much of an asset are they really? Anti-racism is a personal continuing education in White Supremacy and White rule. Real allies understand this and freely admit they will act racistly from time to time. It’s life.
