Because of her various platforms—whether it be her YouTube channel, her hosting gig on MTV’s webseries Decoded, or her stint as a contributor The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore—Franchesca Ramsey has made a career of using humor to explore and provide commentary on weighty topics like cultural appropriation, colonization, sexual harassment, and allyship. At Sundance, where she premiered the first episode of her Topic Studios docuseries Franchesca, we spoke with Ramsey about allyship, and how people in privileged positions can be allies without being assholes.
