Caleb: What’s wrong, Adam? You look upset.
Adam: I just read a news site and its headline referring to activists in Black Lives Matter as 'terrorists.' I'm beyond upset; I'm pissed! I'm disgusted to my core with our society and the political agenda that has infected mainstream media. How dare they vilify a group fighting for equality and justice!
Caleb: Whoa! Terrorists? Really?
Adam: Yeah. They blocked a highway and now they're ‘terrorists.’ You know, when people ask them to protest in another way, what they're really saying is, "Protest in a way that I can ignore." Well, the answer is, "No." We don't get to go on with business as usual while young black individuals are being executed in the streets.
Caleb: This fight should have been over a long time ago, but here we are. I feel like I should do something, but other than raise awareness, I don’t know what to do.
Adam: Edmund Burke once said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” He’s right; we can’t call ourselves good men and do nothing when racism rears its ugly head.
