I had a brown lady emergency, so I broke out my White Male Ally

Nov 15 2012 Published by under Uncategorized


I had to activate one of my White Male Allies to help me with a side-eyes provoking situation at work. This makes me...

  1. glad I have allies
  2. mad I'm in a situation that forces me to ask a White Male Ally for help
  3. mystified how easily the White Male Ally fixes the whole damn thing

UPDATE:  Being a bit anxious about the situation, I checked-in with White Male Ally.  He said, "I wouldn't worry about it" and intimated that the situation is UNDER CONTROL.
