Charlottesville 2017

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention. It's all the white supremacist the president fails to mention. It's all these racist institutions that only aim for the retention, of all people of color still fighting against oppression. & all this lack of action is only building up the tension. I see all the reaction, I feel the apprehension. The impact still remains, regardless of intention. & if we remain silent, we continue the supression.
