There was a recent Ally panel of Brittany Cooper, a Black woman, and an unnamed White woman and Black man. Cooper wants to talk about how she feels like Black men need to be better allies. The Black man on the panel get defensive, throws water on her, and tried to intimidate her more. And no one really shows for her. AND a Black man in the audience starts yelling at her more.
I learned a lesson: everybody wants to have an ally, but no one wants to stand up for anybody.
Really. Fucking. Upsetting.
