Alex Schumacher, my brother from another mother, has fire in his belly and is wielding his pen as a sword. READ THIS, and speak out against the hate and bigotry!
Make no mistake, this article is a call to arms. If the previous section came off as an attempt to embolden the disenfranchised to curl up in the fetal position with your thumb up your ass awaiting the impending apocalypse, allow me to disabuse you all of such a notion. This is not a time to rest on your laurels. This is the time to fight. My hope would be that all of you take a stand against bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and all other forms of xenophobia and intolerance whenever you encounter such abhorrent displays in your daily life.
If you have been lucky enough to avoid interactions of this nature up until this point, know that now, as with Hitler or Mussolini, this shit has again taken center stage and not one person is immune to the disease. As Shaun King says, “LISTEN: If you ever wondered what you would do if you were alive in the Civil Rights Movement, NOW IS THE TIME to find out. NOW. RIGHT NOW.”
