We Get to Decide
The active perpetuation of bigotry is a choice, not just something that happens to us.
But even our silence and passivity is a choice, a tacit acceptance and approval of all we choose not to fight.
When we choose not to confront bigotry in the moment, we also choose to further the suffering of the oppressed.
But that also means we can choose action. We can choose to resist bigotry wherever it exists, and crash the cis-tem!
