Who You Wit? featuring Déjà D. Rollins
Have you noticed performative allyship? Where someone makes a bare minimum display of their support for marginalized communities in an effort to show they are on their side? And once a tweet or two has been shared, it’s back to business as usual. This form of empty advocacy is unproductive and disregards the need for sacrifice and work by privileged individuals. Today we join Déjà D. Rollins as she describes how performative allyship stifles progress and attempts to create real change.
