Fighting racism is not for the faint of heart. Abuse of authority in the federal government is a crime. It is not only against the law but, if proven, it is considered a misdemeanor. What are we willing to do to combat systemic U.S. government racism? Are we willing to speak up?
Are we willing2risk being socially/professionally ostracized? Are we willing2be a victim's witness? Are we willing2lend a shoulder so he/she can cry on? Are we willing2just seat & listen? Are we willing2ask poignant questions & help victims fight racism through the legal system?
Are we willing to accompany the victim through thick and thin? Are we willing to put up and listen to the same complaints over and over again, until the victim processes his/her pain and trauma? What are we doing about it? Tonight let's ask ourselves THAT question #Discrimination
