@ Scared White Allies: “If You Scared, Say You Scared”

Stop trying to temper and tone police black people to expressing themselves in a manner that’s more comfortable for you than constructive for them (us).

If you ally yourself with Black people in opposition to White supremacy, but feel some type of way about checking White privilege–especially your own–your alliance is more of a liability than an asset. Check your fragility, please.

In the words of Outkast featuring Goodie Mob, “if you scared, say you scared.” Don’t blame your fear on Black people being scary. #dontBSyourself
