Black Lives Matter Resource Guide: Anti-Racism Resources

The Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law Legal Research Center is putting together action steps and resources for any and all to connect with their communities and protect and assist people of color.

A Brief Statement about Allyship

Part of being an ally is doing the work and the research for yourself. Discussing action steps with your non-white friends might be okay, but that is on a case-by-case basis, and you should absolutely check with them first. Right now, anything beyond checking in on those friends might be too much. They are exhausted. Communities of color do not have the time or the bandwidth right now, nor should they be expected to have to go out of their way to assist you in your pursuit to support, to assist, to elevate. So, it's important that you do the work yourself. But here are some resources anyway!

Implicit Bias

Implicit bias, also called unconscious bias, is when we have attitudes or stereotypes about a topic but are unaware of them or mistaken about their nature. We have a bias when, rather than being neutral, we have a preference for (or aversion to) a person or group of people. A fairly commonplace example of this is seen in studies that show that white people will frequently associate criminality with black people without even realizing they’re doing it. Overcoming our own implicit biases is key to becoming anti-racist.
