RACISM…standing idly by and doing nothing, enables the vile behaviour of groups like the KKK and White Supremacists! YOU MUST SPEAK UP!!…by Chuck Duboff

EVIL WILL FLOURISH WHEN GOODNESS REMAINS SILENT.

I was sickened beyond words this past weekend seeing images of young white males carrying Nazi flags and inciting rioting and violence.  I have always said that had I been born just a decade earlier that I could have been one of the 6 million Jews who were slaughtered by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.

To see these repugnant animals resurrect  the echoes of HItler’s vile rhetoric CANNOT BE TOLERATED!!!!  Whether you are American, Canadian, British or French, whether you are White, Black, Asian, Jewish, Aboriginal, Gay, Fat, Skinny, Beautiful, Rich or Poor…EVERYBODY MUST STAND UP TO THE EVIL WHICH IS ATTEMPTING TO TAKE OVER THE UNITED STATES.

We as Canadians can’t be smug and say that that only happens in the United States; we must ALL begin to stand up to those who perpetuate RACISM against the Aboriginal people in Canada…we are no better when we make racist commentary towards individuals who have been subjugated for centuries!!!

Hiding your head in the sand, saying nothing when you hear or see acts of Racism, cannot happen anymore.  YOU MUST CONFRONT THE UGLY STAIN OF RACISM!!  By not saying anything, by not doing anything…you are condoning those who would spew racists epitaphs.

For many years I worked with some incredible young students at a high school in Winnipeg; we fought against racism, we voiced our feelings about hatred and promoted human rights for all.  I was, and still am, so very proud of those young people who today still hold those same values.  If they can do it, so can you.

STANDING BY AND DOING NOTHING IS NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE!!

YOU MUST CHALLENGE ANY RACIST BEHAVIOUR YOU HEAR OR SEE!!
