16. I would have marched for those people

was a horrible thing for her to say. "Those People" is something that should not be part of one's vocabulary. And if she would have marched, at some point it would have happened. If she hasn't gotten up on her feet and shown up, then it's reasonable to think she wouldn't. There have been plenty of opportunities, and lord knows there's lots of need. All the racial injustice that's been widely reported on, and she just thinks she "would have?" Would have if what? If things got bad enough? If things haven't been bad enough yet, how bad does it have to get?

I would point her and anyone else wondering how to show up to this: http://www.showingupforracialjustice.org
