Changing racism means believing peoples’ experiences and having some sympathy.
One important note for white people: When people of color share their experiences with white supremacy, believe them.
“I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen who claim to be anti-racist and care about building anti-racist organizations,” Singh says. “But when people of color speak, they’re like, ‘Oh, well, they’re doing it wrong.’ Or ‘That’s one (person’s experience).’ You have an opportunity in that moment to believe what that person is saying.” 1
