It’s important to speak out when there are injustices being committed. Right now, in the U.S. there are forces gathered against many of our rights as citizens. Not only are we treating asylum seekers as criminals, but we are allowing the murder of unarmed civilians be overly aggressive police. Racism and bigotry are running rampant, and an entire gender is being told to “sit down and shut up”.
Who are the perpetrators of this? For the most part it is angry white men. Whether they identify as “incel”, white supremacist, or simply Republican, the message is always the same. Whatever it is that they want, it’s so much more important than what you want/need. The rest of us, and yes, there are more of us than them, are being divided by race, gender and sexual orientation. It’s time to join hands and stand together.
If you believe in “liberty and justice for all”, do whatever you can with what you have. Sign petitions; write your congressperson; register to vote (if you haven’t done so); join a protest/march; give a donation to an organization that follows your own morals. Do what you can. But most importantly, do not be silent!
