A Disturbing Trend

This past weekend, a friend told me that she was afraid to say how she felt, because when she did, she was attacked on social media.  I, myself, have felt and seen such attacks.  Without fail, these attacks are from white United States citizens.  In many cases, these are the same people who loudly and proudly proclaim their Christianity.

Where in the Bible, exactly, is it written that those who speak up in defense of their fellow man should be subject to hate, vitriol, and disdain?  I've read the entire Bible...I must have missed those verses.

To defend your fellow citizens, whether Latino, black, female, or LGBT, is a sign of love, caring, empathy, and honor.  To believe that only you, based on white and/or Christian, have a right to speak is not a reflection of your politics.  To attack those defending those in need of such defense is a revelation instead of your character.

What do you see when you look in that mirror?
