All the social media and the news pages are talking about the covid-19, BLM protests and fighting against antisemitism. Filmstars, influencers, vloggers, sportmen and even businessmen are taking action and express their feelings and what concerns them these trubling times. Also the NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, btw he is one of my favorite sportsmen, is fighting and took a side and represents a fully euitable and politically correct, tolerant view.
Despite all these strong and loud opinions, articles, videos, etc. that come to light each and every day I feel like nothing is changing. The harder we want to change the more responsibility we have and I am concerned about the outcome and the consequences...
Also what could I do as a common person? I am not a protester type.. else? Is this even my fight as a Hungarian living in Prague?
Completely agree with you
If you are behaving fair with everyone and don't say anything malicious willfully then you have already done something for the cause.
Take a stand for God's sake... The crowd can make a change, alone there is no chance to change for good
Are you afraid of saying anything? Are you even interested in the idea of a society free from prejudice? What if you get misunderstood or misjudged by something you say or comment? Answer these questions for yourself truthfully then you'll know wether it worth fighting for your and your neighbours's rights.
The BLM movement isn't just about what the words mean, it is about all living and breathing souls of the world right now. Most of us are oppressed in some sense and it doesn't matter if you're "white", "black" or anything else. Women earn much less and must live up to much more expectiations than men in general, sportmen from the third world countries often are misjudged and must work double for the same respect and sponsorship as someone from the EU or the US... The western society talk about people from Asia like all were from China... Children must fight and kill for their country and religion, work in the fields, mines, factories for pennies or a piece of bread. Sad times of all kinds and means of exploitation...
