Should You Keep Silent if it Doesn’t Affect You?

Many of society’s ills are noticed by many but few intervene  because they either don’t care of feel it is none of their business. Society have placed people in different groups and class and are they treated in a manner in which others believe they should be treated.

So often people see others being unjustly treated and turn a blind eye. Often the way you are treated depends on what race you fall under. I recall an incident at an airport  where cops were trying to detain a white man. He was furious at the way he was been handled  and he shouted and I quote, “YOU ARE TREATING ME LIKE A BLACK PERSON” My thought was damn, and yet people pretend not to notice that black folks are treated differently. I believe that injustice is injustice. Color should not matter. Stop being silent.
