Racial Justice and Equality

"First they came for the Communists

And I did not speak out

Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists

And I did not speak out 

Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the Trade Unionists

And I did not speak out 

Because I was not a Trade Unionist

And then they came for the Jews

And I did not speak out

Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me

And there was no one left 

To speak out for me."

-Pastor Martin Niemoller, written at the time of Hitler's Germany
