If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.Desmond Tutu
This quote amplifies the message that we SHOULD be sharing ways to help through our social media. In another post, I had said that I was hesitant to even repost information because I thought I would be “getting political.” However, I have realized that this isn’t a political issue but rather a humanitarian one. We aren’t talking about voting or polls, we are talking about saving human lives and fighting for justice. If you’re worried about how people will perceive you, ask yourself, “Who are the people that I’m surrounding myself with?” If they are going to make fun of you for calling attention to injustice, then they are the oppressor we are trying to educate. Black people are being killed right now, the least we can do is share information and try to educate. We need to say their names.
The post below has helped me realize these things.
