Ally – one that is associated with another as a helper : a person or group that provides assistance and support in an ongoing effort, activity, or struggle
If you have been awake during this seemingly awoke resurgence in the African American, The Akata, The Shine Community you have seen a word often used.
It seems in this fight of ‘oppression’ Black Millennial’s seek out allies to help fight against Racism, AKA the white man got his foot on our neck AKA White SUPREMACY
I am sick of you ally seeking ass niggas. Dead Ass
Mr. Thorn, I consider you not only an ally but an accomplice in the struggle against white supremacy. Thank you for leveraging your influence to amplify marginalized voices. Keep fighting the good fight!

I think if there’s one thing we should have learned this year, it would be that it takes a lot more than being vocally against 45-level demonstrations of white supremacy to actually be an ally to marginalized people.

1st off i find it wild Y’all will ask the same people that you say are oppressing you.
2nd its demeaning to tell me I am marginalized and you want to be my ally. I can do it by myself B
I’m Just disgusted. Y’all seek out and argue and beg Allies instead of bearing down and doing the hard work.
Never heard of another race or Ethnic Group talk about an ‘Ally’ as African Americans.
They don’t seek approval or help they do it for self
The eternal story of the Shine
