Abolitionists not Allies Stop Saying Woke

    • Society & Culture

Rebecca and Shea launch into their first episode of their first season by calling out white women who claim to be allies yet attempt to control BIPOC spaces through tone policing and threatening to leave the movement when they encounter a boundary.

“But who gets to play that card, who plays it first, and who plays it the hardest? And also who plays it with a level of threat? Which is, if you don’t meet my comfort and my definition of safety, I will withdraw my support, and in the history of whiteness in this country withdrawing my support also means making you more vulnerable to harm.” - Shea
