“The world suffers a lot. Not because of the violence of bad people. But because of the silence of the good people.”
For all of you who think this is not your problem, the world suffers because of your silence. Yes, you may not be a racist but that evidently, is not helping anymore. It’s important that we are all anti-racist and we stand up for the atrocities that are happening around us every day. Not a lot of us are lucky enough to be privileged enough to have the ability to help others. If you have that privilege, make use of it. Help those who need your help. You don’t have to try and change the whole world. That’s stupid, you can’t do it on your own. You just have to stand up for what’s right and we can do it together.
Love is inherent, hate is taught. Why do we have to hate somebody because of their colour? Why do we have to hate somebody because of their race? Their sex? Their sexuality? Their Religion? Their Nationality? We have our differences, our ideologies, beliefs and we even look different. Not all of it may make sense to us but not understanding is not an excuse for not respecting. We’re not the same and that’s exactly what makes us beautiful. The beauty of humankind lies in its diversity. End of the day, we’re all in this together. This is our home; we do not have another planet to live in. It’s important that we stand up for what’s right so that all of us can live in peace as equals with mutual respect. The time has come for you to take a stand. Do you wish to be a part of the change or do you wish to be ignorant?
