Is it important for anti-racist organizations and movements (such as Black Lives Matter) to make concessions in order to gain white allies?

Umm... As a white person, I freely acknowledge that people of color deserve to have the same basic rights as me, regardless of how polite or impolite they may be. The fact there are people who think those who are rude to them genuinely need to die is so, just, outlandish and ridiculous to me.

They don't have to bend over backwards, but since there are white people that march with them, acknowledge they do so.

Lmao. There is no way they can overcome their vicious hatred, prejudice and hypocrisy so much to appeal to white voters. It just simply could never happen. Most whites don’t like anti white policies that seek to undermine the American culture identity and hinder themselves in every day life. They don’t want to be second class citizens in their own countries

BLM is currently a liberal movement backed by wealthy crackers. We have no reason to expect anything better than appealing to whitey.

No. Real allies don’t need concessions. Never ask the “master” for your freedom—take it!

Yes. It would also help if they based their platforms off of truth.

This is inspired by a discussion between a white liberal teacher and a black student in my school last year. The teacher was saying it's important for black people to try to appeal to white people, because otherwise nothing will change. The black student, of course, disagreed.

I disagree with the teacher as well. The problem is that you need to appeal to white people to get anything to change in this country. We can't fix racism with small reforms palatable to white people. If white people dont want to help, too bad. Black people will struggle without their help.

Most of the BLM marchers are white anyway.

Some....I’m not sure “most” is the right answer
