White Liberal America’s Cop Out

****frank thoughts from a white woman who’s trying to be a better ally presents:

White Liberal America is only outraged if their money and power is being used against them or unjustly (Occupy Movement, Koch Brothers). Yet the minute a member of a marginalized community is gunned down, White Liberal America hides behind their fake rhetoric and platitudes for change while the streets run red with the blood of humanity being desecrated by keepers of the peace.

Real change means doing the heavy lifting. Demanding a higher standard– of respect and tolerance. Of justice and dignity. Real change means changing our culture from one of apathy to empathy. Real change means knowing you are not a bystander. You can do something. You matter.
