Checklist for Allies

Rachel's post a few days ago linked to this article on the role of allies, and within that article, you'll find a checklist for allies -- what should we as allies be doing on a daily basis?

Sunday Morning Segregation

A recent article in the online magazine The Grio provides insight into the Black-White segregation of American Christians during the Sunday morning church hour, and offers starting points for overcoming the division.

Although I wish that the author, Charlton McIlwain of NYU Steinhardt and The Project on Race in Political Communication, had helped us examine the broader racial/ethnic divide of Sundays mornings -- not just the Black-White divide -- still, an understanding of the Black-White dichotomy often serves as an introductory step toward understanding the impact of racism across a spectrum of racial/ethnic groups.
