Spill the Tea: Being Better Allies #BlackLivesMatter

This week’s topic is: Being Better Allies

If you have ever asked yourself “How can those of us who are not black become better allies for ending racism?” this is the show for you.

Kama Burton joined us today for some real talk about racism and how we can be better allies. She is a Mother, Friend, Author, Founder of Loving Me 1st, a 501c3, helping those affected by domestic violence… She is also a REALTOR® and newly licensed real estate Broker, an Adjunct Professor, and an activist.

For many of us, the constant news reports of violence and discrimination are traumatic, particularly for members of the black community who experience it at disproportionately higher rates.

Even when divinely-intentioned humans of various shades, backgrounds, and experiences join together for crucial conversations about racism, tensions can rise.

Being uncomfortable is not something we have the luxury of avoiding right now… If you have a willingness to listen, to be educated, and to understand how you can use your voice for the betterment of others, join the three of us as we listen, share, and learn together.

It’s time to embrace discomfort, look it in the eye, and do the work.

Lionesses, pull out your sassiest teacup, brew your favorite tea blend, snuggle into your coziest spot, grab a pen, paper, and bring your open mind to listen in on this hour of togetherness…

Molly kicks us off with a guided cooling breath exercise to prepare us for a crucial (likely uncomfortable) conversation.

Kama is sipping a delish Green Tea, Molly is drinking the SUMMER blend from Intentionaliteas and Debra is sipping their spicy LOVE blend. Stay tuned for EqualiTea to honor this chat and Kama’s charity!

Here are some of the questions that we cover:

  1. What questions do you wish people would stop asking?
  2. What questions do you wish people would start asking?
  3. Why do you feel like the current protests are different?
  4. How can those of us who are white become better allies for ending racism?
  5. Do you have books or podcasts you suggest?
