What Side of History are you on? https://medium.com/@jess_rimington/what-side-of-history-are-you-on-83ac8dc4d334. “Many of the articles currently circulating suggest that, as a white person, to educate oneself on these issues is enough to be an ally. I believe this is a cop-out. To be an ally right now is to understand enough to be outraged and to decide you are fed up with institutional racism and will use your white privilege to dismantle the very systems that perpetuate it.” — Jess Rimmington
