What Good Does It Do To Post Back to Racists On Social Media?

Some people say, “What good does it do to keep repeating the truth to people who are racist, misogynist and will never change?”

The answer is:

Good people must give these bottom dwellers no sanctuary.

We must give them no space to speak, unimpeded.

We must not release an inch of territory to them.

Whether it be the grocery store, social media, the hairdresser’s place of business, or your Aunt’s home. These bottom dwellers must have no peace.

If we make space for hate, it will consume us.

If you make space for hate, it will consume you.

I can’t breathe.
