Being a Black woman, I never thought that I would be considered an ally but after watching the videos and doing some reading, I know now that even though I am a minority I can still be an ally to another group of people who may be discriminated against; like the LGBTQ community or Muslims. When looking at the Ally continuum, I would say that I'm just at the Aware stage. I'm aware of what people in this group is facing, I'm aware of the fights and protests, but that's about it. I don't know if I can move past this level to become active until my people, Black people, starts receiving the justice and proper treatment we have been asking for since the beginning. Until our community starts to get the treatment we deserve, I can't be an active ally for any other group; but that is just MY opinion and stance.
