Do you think it’s hard to speak up for what is right regardless of whether you are a member of a privileged group or not? Meaning, there might be other reasons why it’s hard to speak up — fear comes to mind. What I’m thinking is that this difficulty might have a lot to do with being a character trait in humanity — depending on the personality of the person. Some people seem more able to speak up, some people don’t. All things being equal, what makes the difference? My guess is personality differences…some people are more blunt, some people more cautious.
“We have to stand up for what we believe in, even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves, authentic and true to who we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart.”
