    He’s absolutely right! I’m Hispanic and see the same behavior in the community, the covert racism that hides in the culture is heavy.

  4. Sierra Curry says:

    Unfortunately I doubt this will reach most of your people..😔 you’re right though. That turn a blind eye situation is so real. I hope they hear you ✊🏾

    You can see the fury in his eyes. It’s how we all feel.

  9. Entropic Echo says:

    His passion is so authentic it made me emotional. We have to do something to get this country back from the people who are currently in control. If we don’t fight like hell we’re going to lose everything.

    in Germany we have a saying, it goes like this: “When they came for the jews, I didn’t say anything because I am not a jew. When they came for the socialist, i also didn’t say anything because i am not a socialist. When they came for me, nobody said anything, because no one was left, who could have protested against it.” Its really not the best motive to protest against racism, but its still f***ing good reason.

    • Luísa Macêdo says:

      I think it is a Bertold Brecht quote, isn’t it?

    • XERXES HAMBURG says:

      Sorry but his is not a sayin. It is a poem from Martin Niemöller.

    • Pranjal Rahman says:

      When I used to live in Germany, I learned of Martin Niemöller and puts famous First They Came poem. I absolutely love the message of this poem and how it resonates so well in times like this. Being silent and standing on the sidelines is being part of the problem. We must stand together and resist. Some transgressions should never be tolerated.

    • joel0joel0 says:

      @Luísa Macêdo i googled it now, and its actually a quote from Martin Niemöller, a Pastor, who protested against the Nazi Regime and it stands also in the Holocaust memorial museum in New York.

    • Wasch Karte says:

      @XERXES HAMBURG It’s not even a poem.

      It tells the story like it happened. He was a theologist and said that after WW2. Where it was exactly like this. One after one they said “well, this is harsh, but ok” and when the “fine” people finally realized where the system has brought them, they could not defend themselfes against the same violence any more. There were no people left to defend them, while they did not defend those who needed it in the first place.

      The quote is absolutely fitting. I’m from Germany, I’ll be on a demonstration this week. Showing that the world watches. The world stands with all protesters. And I for myself have finally opened my eyes to my own racism. Altough I would consider myself quite a progressive person, I do see racist behaviour in my daily life. And it needs to stop.

  15. Nugget & Sophia says:

    Yes!! I needed this lift! I feel supported by your justified anger. This clarity is key.

  16. Sweetahthan says:

    This made me uncomfortable…. Thank you. THIS is the conversation that needs to happen. Opening up everything let it all be known. Lay it all on the table. Like really admitting racism is in the language and inherited by everyone. Then plan! A plan of action for all.

    I’m brought to tears. I’m gonna share this everywhere I can and to everyone I know.

    Finally somebody besides me that thinks MLK did not just help the African American community but every immigrant for rights.
