If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of oppressor
I found this sentence near a primary school, on a colourful handmade poster.
It was the wise word from Desmond Tutu, and it struck me of how I was burying my head in the sand that even a poster made by school children had more courage than me.
It was the time when people started calling “Black Lives Matter,” but I almost never expressed opinions because I told myself it was not my place to say.
The truth was, I used that as an excuse to avoid touching serious and sensitive issues and never truly faced myself.
當時正值「Black Lives Matter」的抗議浪潮興起，街頭巷尾經常看見手工的聲援看板，不過看見這張海報時我有一種被重重打臉的感覺，我想著跟這個孩子比起來，我真是非常不勇於表達自我——不僅如此，我總是下意識地遮住眼睛不去關注敏感或較爭議性的議題，原因究竟是什麼呢？
