Ask. Listen. Believe. How to be a white ally.

In other words, if we are serious about becoming white allies to people of color and acting in good faith towards them, we need the humility to believe them long enough to examine our assumptions. (Humility is a great cardinal virtue, and without it other virtues don’t get much room to work.) If we are humble enough to ask, listen and believe, and if we have the courage (another cardinal virtue) to put at risk our existing conceptions of the world and our place in it, then our collaborative work has the added benefit of revealing the world around us.
