Where do you think you are on the ally continuum? If you are a person of color, you can still become an ant-racist ally to other racially marginalized group. Do you think you already demonstrate allyship?
I think at this point I have become an advocate. I used to shy away from having hard conversations with family, but somewhere in the last two years I realized that was a form of complicity. Earlier in the year, I called out my brother on a family group chat about a racist joke he had just shared "in jest", and I have sat down with my mom, dad, and another brother to discuss systemic racism and find out where they are on that and tell them my personal story of becoming aware and realizing I have a responsibility to work toward changing things. My husband and I have both marched, and we have talked about racism with our six year old- explicitly explaining what racism is, why we have protested, and how she can stand up for people when she sees it happening. My concern with me personally is that I would drift back to only being active. That is something I want to keep from happening.
