I don’t care if you are right or left or center. Just vote.
I don’t care if you’re not energized. Just vote.
Don’t stand back. Don’t stand by.
My personal desire to be “a good human,” to “treat everyone as equals,” or to “value diversity” has no impact on my country’s design. It has no impact on the systems that favor me, except to keep them in place. My individual values do not even begin to nudge the scales of opportunity and justice back toward equilibrium. And they never will. Because “racism doesn’t require malice.”
