Don’t you just love it when the online video you’re watching looks like an impressionist painting but the preroll advertisement comes in with crisp, clear HD quality? Imagine that times a billion.

And all y’all need to watch this. It will happen.
"The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict."
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
"History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people."
The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
Martin Luther King Jr.
I love these quotes by MLK and they are some of my favorite by him. Note that they are all about the same subjects: Silence and Inaction.
As Black History Month ends I want to reiterate these points above all else, and yes, that includes love, education and peace.
Because oppression still occurs to many people. Whether it’s happening to people of color, immigrants, marginalized religious groups, members of LGBTQIA community or if all these groups intersect; people who aren’t as oppressed or marginalized and people who have privilege must not be silent and passive in the face of someone else’s oppression.
We must use our resources and positions to help uplift them, and let them speak about their experiences and help them remove the blockades of oppression so everyone will be at equal footing.
History has shown what happens when people are silent and inactive, let us not continue this trend.
Why here out of all the places
Why you out of all the people
