NaBloPoMo Day 13: Calling it out

Share it Please

There has been a noticeable spike in ugliness lately. Either that or my awareness of it has tipped past the point of no return. It doesn't really matter which it is, I just know that I can't stand by.

I'm not going to post a Facebook status, sign a petition, or wear a safety pin. What I am going to do is call shit out when I see it. Someone made a remark about a certain train line that picks up at a heavily Indian town as the "curry express", I called it out for what it was. Some guy yelled that I have nice legs and I told him, "nobody asked you your opinion". (My heart raced with that one because you never know how someone will react). My cousin-in-law posted an incredibly racist video on Facebook and I let him know it was unacceptable.

I know these small acts aren't going to fix the problems of the world overnight, but at least I can try to clean house in the circles I move in. It's probably better if I don't identify myself with a safety pin, they won't see me coming.
