I support ...

donat(ing) to the NAACP, and joining and donating to the SPLC and the ACLU. Speak up in public, Church and where ever it needs to be done.

But hesitate on the joining the NAACP suggestion, unless that person has thoroughly disabused him/herself of the notion that join means "gives equivalence of opinion on racial issues" or "the right to be heard."

Just saying ... that "How to be an ally" thing.

you are quite correct ... I am in no way a DU "progressive"!
