Racism, Sexism, Classism, the other “isms” and YOU!



YES, It’s always “The other Guy”. . . until IT’S YOU!



As we listen to and are tempted to repeat the rhetoric about immigrants, people of other races, religions, or those in any way different from ourselves, I pray that we remember, reflect upon and consider the wisdom of these words:



First they came for the Jews

and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.



Then they came for the Communists

and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.



Then they came for the trade unionists

and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.



Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.



– Niemöller –
