Penn Badgley Shows Us the Perfect Way to be a White Ally

Here's what to do: Stop talking; just listen.

Here's what to say to accodlades for being involved: "Thanks, but it's not about me."

That's what Penn Badgley, former star of CW's Gossip Girl and current member of the band Mothxr, recommends white people do to effectively support racial justice movements. In an exclusive video for Mic, Badgley explains, "The most important thing to acknowledge right now ... is that you're asking a white male celebrity why it's important to him to participate in a movement that is not about him."

Badgley recorded the short video after his activism at #MillionsMarchNYC, highlighted by MSNBC Shift's Krystal Clear.
