Holding Whites Accountable
Posted by Jack Stephens on March 19, 2007
Yolanda (of the Blog and the Bullet and Primary Contradiction) blogs about whites in the anti-racist movement:
Anytime we try to hold white allies accountable for their actions, we take a huge risk. Whether that is the loss of a personal relationship, a smeared reputation, or simply the wrath of someone whose ego we have bruised, people of color in all strata of the left have an uphill battle in challenging white supremacy. Good people, you and I have seen and experienced many examples of white ally catastrophe.
