1. "Being an ally doesn’t mean a retweet or standing at a rally. Being a true ally means working hard to address your privilege in your day to day life. You don’t get a reward for this, in fact, it may cost you.You may lose a promotion, you may lose some friends. The benefits of your privilege will disappear. All for people you may not even know. We all have something to lose when we address our privilege, our unfair birthright. So you may need to expand your identity. Your idea of community. Your idea of family.To include someone you may never know. Someone who will never say thank you. I don’t know if you’ll get anything from it. It’s time to decide if you love a stranger. Someone who looks nothing like you. Someone who you may not even like, more than your privilege.” -Ijeoma Oluo
