How to be an Ally. A conversation with Abe Williams

man holding a sign

“There are things white people will say like ‘I am colorblind’. You can say that if you are not in any danger.”

“I just am realizing that the ability to sit out and watch from a place of comfort is really a privilege and that’s uncomfortable.”

“Growing up I knew that my black friends had to be better behaved than me. Their parents would tell them, ‘Don’t get into trouble with that white boy because if you do, you are the one that’s going to get into trouble, you are the one that’s going to get the punishment.’ “

This and so much more from my friend Abraham Jappar Williams! Thank you for the conversation!
