Advice for White Folks in the Wake of the Police Murder of a Black Person — Justin C. Cohen

Mr. Militant Negro reblogged this on The Militant Negro™ and commented:

1.  If you’re White, don’t look to your friends of color for answers today. 2.  What happened to Alton Sterling is, in fact, about race. 3. Be aware of a few standard, and racist, media tropes about Black victims. 4. As a White person, you are in a unique position to influence the perspectives of other White people. It is never too late to make a personal commitment to being a more active ally in the movement for Black lives. A year ago this month, folks were fighting to take down the Confederate flag from the South Carolina state capitol, after the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. A year ago this month we started wondering what happened to Sandra Bland. Correcting these injustices is the work of generations, not years or months. If you’re a White person on the sidelines, we need you in the fight. Please raise your voice, particularly today. Justin C. Cohen cropped-unnamed-21.png
