My silence and privilege are wrong.

Brian Jackson,
China.

I realize now that with my white male privilege, I have a unique position and that my silence is what allows the minority who sow hatred to flourish. I must speak out to my peers but doing so will make me an outcast. I do not hesitate but am acutely aware of how oppressive being in the majority can be when you must speak against them.
