White supremacy relies on white silence.

White people who do not speak up about racism are cogs in the machinery of white supremacy, quietly furthering it. If other cogs are turning, that is enough to turn you as well unless you actively fight back. Resisting white supremacy necessitates action, especially from white people. We need to start turning our cogs the other way instead of wishing the cogs wouldn’t turn at all.
