Be an Ally

On , Person said:

So, SO much understanding and dialogue is needed, but potential allies can start anytime.
Start by speaking up when you hear someone make a racist comment; just remember to call out the comment, not the person.
You’re not likely to get anywhere classifying a person as a racist based on something they said. You probably have no real evidence of who or what they are as a person, you may not know all the factors that led to them making an ignorant comment.
You DO have evidence that they said something that describes an uninformed bias. Point out the bias of their comment and remind them that the group they are categorizing is actually made up of many, many unique individuals.
