This discussion will foster a conversation about allies and white fragility.
Many non-BIPOC live in a social environment that insulates them from race-based stressors. This fabricated environment of racial protection creates a false construct of people claiming to be allies, but the actions of these people are destructive to the real work that needs to be accomplished. This discussion will address what real allyship is and whether white fragility will be the ultimate roadblock to getting things done on any real basis. Will this fragility become the major stumbling block to true racial progress?
