The 4 Kinds of Justice Fighters

This post has been seen 1274 times.

When it comes to fighting injustice … there are 4 kinds of people…

The first are the ones that see an injustice, but due to years of conditioning are not even aware that there is an injustice.

The second are those, that see an injustice, know it is an injustice, but rather than do something about it, they make up excuses on why they can’t help. They blame it on work, time, etc. And soon they start believing their excuses so much that they become like the first group above and believe that there is no injustice.

The third are those, that know there is an injustice and actually do something about it … but only as long as it does not get them in trouble. They are the ones that will revolt in the meeting room but are rarely seen on the battle ground.

Majority of people fall into this third class, they get upset and seek change as long as it does not threaten their status quo, their job or their comfort level. They are the sort of people that will not help you beyond their comfort zone.

But then the last group of rare people … the fourth group, they see an injustice, they know it is an injustice, and they take action even if it means risking it all. These are the ones that change the world, the Malcolm X’s, the MLK’s, the Mandela’s.

They speak up when everyone is afraid to speak up, they are not afraid of getting fired or losing their job. They don’t factor themselves in the fight process, the give their all so that others can receive justice.

The fourth group is who we need in this world … they are the ones that change the world, that reform age-old laws, that demand justice NOW … they are the ones that we should strive to be … voluntary fighters of injustice … sticking out their necks for other people even at the risk of it getting cut off!

    This is the 2nd time I’m seeing the qoute in d pix by MLK Jnr this week… The 1st was while listening to Dr. Joe Okei Odumakin on Seriously Speaking with Adesuwa Onyenokwe on Sunday evening… Indeed, the ones that are needed to make a difference are the category 4 people, who give their all for others. Most times I find myself in category 3, with loads of excuses and ‘reasons’ not to take risks to right a wrong and get justice… Your words are like fire.. thanks for the reminder of how to truly live!
