¡Palabra!: White Ally

A White Ally is a white person who actively works to eliminate racism. A white ally is motivated by self-interest, a sense of moral obligation, or a commitment to foster social justice and does not patronize or assume to “help” people of color in paternalistic ways. A white ally may engage in anti-racism work both in collaboration with other white people and in coalition with people of color. Source:
