O silêncio nojento das pessoas de boa-vontade
Enquanto não há tratamento para todos os que o precisam...
Letter from a “white moderate” to Martin Luther King:
“All Christians know that the colored people will receive equal rights eventually— eventually—but it is possible that you are in too great a religious hurry. It has taken Christianity almost 2000 years to accomplish what it has. The teachings of Christ take time to come to Earth.”
Martin Luther King responds:
"…such an attitude stems from a tragic misconception of time and a strangely irrational notion that there is something in the flow of time that will inevitably cure all ills. Actually, time itself is neutral. It can be used destructively or constructively. More and more I feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than the people of good will.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people."
