Black lives matter: Ways to be an ally

In the wake of the tragedy in Ferguson, Missouri, where a police officer shot an unarmed black teenager, we want to share this excellent article that shares important ways white people can be outspoken allies for justice and equality. As the article says – black lives matter, and we must all take action:

Let’s talk about an active role for white people in the fight against racism because racism burdens all of us and is destroying our communities. And, quite frankly, because white people have a role in undoing racism because white people created and, for the most part, currently maintain (whether they want to or not) the racist system that benefits white people to the detriment of people of color. My white friends who’ve spoken out harshly against the murder of Michael Brown end with a similar refrain: What can I do that will matter in the fight against racism?
