Who Gets To Be Afraid In America, by Ibram X. Kendi (see his bio below this article)

Above are anti-racism resources for white folks, asian folks, non-American folks, POC who benefit from being able to “pass” as white, and anyone who wants to learn and understand the horror of racism in America.

If non-black people love our children and want them to live in a better world–one that looks very different from today’s society, then we MUST not only dream but work to create a kinder country–a place where children of all walks of life will thrive.

For me personally as an ally, I believe it is my responsibility to have honest conversations with non-black people I know when they are doing or saying racist things. Right at that very moment.

Let’s help each other be better for our current children and future children.

Let’s teach ourselves, our family, friends and kids why racism is bad and how to build an anti-racist country and world.

Thanks to Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein for doing great work as allies and Indya Moore for bringing our movement to a wider audience.
