(I have always believed that goodness is the aberration in humanity, not evil.)

We are survivors

We are killers

We are bystanders

We are humanity.

 

We are the holocaust

We are the concentration camps in British South Africa

We are the concentration camps in American California

We are Herero

We are the Middle Passage

We are Nauru

We are Srebrenica

We are Soweto

We are Rwanda

We are Biafra

 

We are everyday sexism

We are garden variety racism

We are modern day slavery.

We are hatred and bile, love and indifference.

 

 

We are survivors

We are killers

We are destruction

We are the barrel of the gun

We are bystanders

We are human
