Anti-racism allies: More needs to be done

Tips for allies: make educating yourself your own responsibility; do not discredit people’s feelings and experiences of racism based on your (in)experience of it as an ally; challenge the status quo every time you can; racism is systemic, it does not rest, Black people are black 24/7, an ally should be one 24/7; be loud about your allyship and make sure your actions match your words; and last, but not least, understand you are not a hero for being an ally; you are just a human doing the right, decent thing.
