But what inflames me even more, and what Dr. King spoke about vehemently, is complicity. Americans have been complicit too many times throughout the decades, to our own misfortune. “Good” people everywhere have been complicit, allowing unspeakable things to occur. These so-called “good” people allowed Japanese Americans to be rounded up like cattle and sent to internment camps because of their ethnic origins. They allowed Black Americans to be sold on butcher’s blocks to the highest bidder. They allowed Native Americans to march on the Trail of Tears to die. They allowed corruption, pain, and injustice to thrive.
