Inaction & Injustice

Overlooking or ignoring injustice can be just as bad as the injustice itself.

It communicates that you’re OK with it and lowers the bar. It desensitizes you and sets you up to ignore even bigger injustice next time.

When you don’t agree with something it’s up to you to act upon it and let everyone involved know that you’re raising the bar and that we all need to move in the right direction, even if it’s in small, baby steps.

(Baby steps are not nearly enough right now—what we really need are huge leaps—but some people, unfortunately, can only start the change with baby steps.)
