This is one of the most powerful speeches on race in America I have ever had the privilege of watching. You owe it to yourself to watch this in its entirety. If it makes you feel uncomfortable, sit in that discomfort for a few minutes. After all, our black brothers and sisters have had to sit silently through far worse things in the history of our young nation.

And when you see oppression happening around you, speak the fuck up. Use your privilege to amplify the quietest voices in the room. None of us are equal until all of us are equal.
