I believe that education is key and people are more receptive to receive information if it's one achieved through conversations @GreenTea you're absolutely right@Mike that's a really good question. Right now I believe the best thing allies can do is what @GreenTea has mentioned above and to have those difficult conversations with other non people of colour

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

My worry about these protests is whether they will actually amount to any change. Historically, protests succeed when the authority is open to the protestor claims, and it doesn't look like the American government is really open to that. Especially when you consider the small group of violent actors that the media focus on, that works against any hope of change considerably more. This is not the first protest for BLM, and likely not the last, but I do worry that we're going to have this same conversation again and again without anything actually changing. This is partly why people lose hope in politics - when you're having the same debate and conversation over and over without anything changing. Hopefully they can achieve change though x
