A Message To Fellow White People: Speak up.

Fellow white people:

Speak up against bigotry and fascism.

Loudly.

Every. Time.

In person, online, whenever and wherever you can. Make it a topic of conversation where people don’t want to talk about it.

Publicly call out and shame those who are racists.

Like it or not, we have privilege.

The racists and fascists can’t discount us as easily.

So speak up.

Speak up like lives depend on it.

Because they do.
