The 6 Rules for Allies

This was sent to me by a friend today and I have to share it. Dr. Omi Osun Joni L. Jones gives 6 rules for allies (cross race/gender/sexuality/nationality/religion etc) in her keynote speech given 2/19/10 at a luncheon sponsored by Abriendo Brecha Vll Conference and The Seventeenth Annual Emerging Scholarship In Women’s and Gender Studies Conference UT Austin (originally posted here). What she says is incredible, very provocative, and very challenging, it is also something that I need to hear and keep hearing. These rules apply for multiple situations and will surely take much work to get a hold of.
