"How to Be an Ally" (Patrise Cullors from BLM)

BLM sign in Arlington VA

Patrise Cullors (a founder of Black Lives Matter) talks about “How to Be an Ally”.  This is a recent video, today, Dec. 21, and would go along with a recent YouTubeOriginal series of videos called “Resist”. "Allyship" has become a trendy word, of what is expected now. 

She talks about the concepts of ally, accomplice, and co-conspirator.

Sometimes an “ally” only shows up when it is convenient.

She also says that privilege is a matter of what you have not been forced to deal with as well as what you have been given.
