Take a risk. It's amazing how many excuses seven politically-correct people can find for talking instead of acting boldly. Build a culture of resistance by yourself taking a risk, and explain to your friends that inspiring each other to act requires a lot of risk-taking on everyone's part -- while recognizing that different people can take different risks more or less easily. Watching a movie together like Danny Glover's Freedom Song, about the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee entering Mississippi Klan country in 1961, can help build your action group's resolve. That was one of Dr. King's greatest contributions to the young activists of his day: He showed through action how people inspire one other to organize and act in turn.
