by vocalizing dissent and speaking up against racism and bigotry. Silence and neglect for such instances, whether on national scale like Charlottesville, or something as

small as a comment made in the house, “advantages the oppressor, not the victim.”Brislin, resisting tears while speaking at the modify, mentioned the deaths of Heyer in addition to Virginia state authorities Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Cannon fodder Berke M. M.
