If you think racism only exists in the deep South, think again. It's in your backyard!!


Racism is systemic and manifests in a variety of forms. Some is overt and much is hidden, or acknowledged with a knowing look.

If we don't speak up and point out every instance then we should not expect change.

What would happen if each of us calls out a 'friend' when they make a statement that exhibitis a racists outlook ... particularly when they don't consider themselves racist (and perhaps aren't at the core of their soul?)

What happens when a nation elects a leader that refuses to denounce white supremacists who support him? Who doesn't speak out about the alleged murder of a reporter, who condones ripping children from their parents arms and locking them in cages...

To paraphrase Martin Luther King Jr., When you tolerate one racist act you tolerate all racism.
