I have a simple suggestion for you. Read back through this entire thread from the start & see if you can find a way to do better next time. Do that instead of objecting to any single thing you think you did or didn't do. Do better next time.

You're not an ally just because you call yourself one. That's not how this works.

Best lesson from university was a guest lecturer who came in and said something like "Everyone in this room is racist. You may not mean to be but you have lived in a racist society and those views are in you whether you are aware or not. Your job is to recognise this, and proactively unlearn it"

Exactly. I would add that accepting that you personally benefit from racism is another aspect to that, and then admit that you will consciously set out to both see it and dismantle it.

For sure! I think the only reason he didn’t say that we all benefit was because the class may have been majority white but in New Zealand we have so many cultures that a large portion of the class would have experienced the detriments of racism.
