"People Didn't Help Us, they Just Stared": When you know it is f*cked up, but you do nothing anyway

“People Didn’t Help Us, they Just Stared”: When you know it is f*cked up, but you do nothing anyway

I recall an incident that occurred 9 years ago in which I remained silent when I knew I should have said something. I link this experience to overall questions of how and why do so many folk in the USA, at least, remain silent when we know a social injustice is occurring right in front of their faces.

  1. Hi! I can relate to your sense of regret. I find that since moving to Canada those kind of injustices are not as common. Those moments we have, and we all have them become our voice. They remind us to speak up- because we know how bad it feels not to do it. I agree and love your message, “get involved”! When you witness people’s lack of humanity I think you can easily become discouraged. But faith, people are still genuinely good- a little scared to step in- but mostly good.
