My sister and I on the playground at school. I knew from young that "RACISM is an ILLNESS", and I was raised to speak up against injustice. The back of the shirt read, "ARE YOU SICK....?"
Hatred is taught and instilled, as is Love. Which one will you choose to celebrate, articulate, empower, and share?
My family members were killed during the holocaust, slavery, and Native American genocide, but those members that survived are why I'm alive today. My family raised me to Love, despite the horrific tragedies and atrocities that they survived, and they also taught me to speak up in the face of injustice.
