Is funny how the letter talks about the outsiders coming in but Americans where the outsiders coming in when they found America since Native Americans were in America before Americans

I agree with Kaya, unjust for one race is unjust for all individual of that race everywhere

What happen on Capital is not only done under ignorance and brainwash but white supremacy
Alyssa Ciango
01:12:53

Brainwash by white supremacy

(sorry I sent that early) Thank you all for your time and vulnerability. I've learned a lot and have a lot to reflect on. Sometimes it seems like everybody's go-to response to injustice is to protest and, unless you're white, the end result seems to be violence and numbness to people's struggles. What are ways that we can engage in forming "creative tension" in inventive ways as a form of modern day advocacy?
Ana Espinoza
01:15:13
“Justice too long delays in justice denied” which to me means justice never comes until death comes
Stephen Sterrett
01:16:09
Dr, King advocated nonviolent civil disobedience to challenge unjust laws. In the intervening 57 years, most of those laws have changed, but systemic racism remains. Is nonviolent civil disobedience the appropriate tactic to confront systemic racism or are there better tactics?
Ana Espinoza
01:18:02
Just law is man made code; unjust law is a code related to personality
Ana Espinoza
01:19:29
A law is unjust if it shames or humiliates one’s personality
Emma Siefring
01:21:00
“Legality and morality are not the same” woo what a quote!!
Ana Espinoza
01:21:17
According to MLK racial signs such as “White” and “Black-Negroes” are unjust
Steve Shapiro
01:24:39
As folks look to undo institutional racism, how does King’s Letter speak to those who suggest seeking “small wins” as stepping stones vs those seeking to make major changes that might appear radical or unsettling to those who benefit from the current systems.
Alyssa Ciango

Wanted to let you know that I have removed the attendee Becky Burton for her comments. I will continue to monitor the chat and remove anyone with disrespectful or hateful comments.
Elaine Hall

There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no longer willing to be plunged into an abyss of injustice. Is this the time? and what is the way to change the direction?
Linda Reese
01:32:29
My fellow social psychologists know that we are far less likely to support/give the benefit of the doubt to people who are different, or distant, from us. What can we, as white people/supporters/advocates do to get closer? To be or feel more connected? Because what has been happening in entirely unacceptable, and needs to change.
Ana Espinoza
01:32:46
MLK says in his letter that people do need to let their emotions out, if not they may react violently
Ana Espinoza
01:36:42
Yes, show emotions peacefully
