You’re free to feel however it is you wish to feel. You can love and hate as you please. By all means, your emotions are not to be regulated.
HOWEVER, YOUR ACTIONS ARE ANOTHER THING.
The violence created by racism
The unequal application of laws
The racial profiling
The laws that allow someone who appears “hispanic” or “black” or “arab” or “asian” to be carded to determine if they are citizens or not
to be “stopped and frisked” in NYC, San Fran, N.O., Florida, TX, where ever
The refusal to give a job or equal pay for someone who is qualified and choose someone LESS qualified for a job
The threatening or bullying
The UNequal funding of educational institutions
Gentrification of communities
THESE ACTIONS MUST BE RESPONDED TO WITH CONSEQUENCES
It is the LACK of consequences for these actions that creates an unsafe society.
We do not want to pressure anyone to feel a certain way. You do not have to LIKE any of us, and we don’t have to like you either
BUT we do have to coexist, no matter what kind of way we feel about it. And that means when any one mistreats another, THERE MUST BE CONSEQUENCES.
