This is a quote from an activist named Nelson Mandala. He was someone during this time period who really impacted the Civil Rights era. He changed peoples lives in Little Rock Arkansas for the better. For example, African Americans lives like Liz were improved because earlier in time it was difficult for her and her family members to deal with society but now African Americans are treated more equally.
Yes to this, but at the same time, we shouldn't need the idea of reciprocity in order to help others. Are you okay with being the kind of person who sits and does nothing while other people are suffering? Are you okay with benefitting from their suffering? Is that the kind of person you want to be? No? Then maybe you should fight for the oppressed. Use your voice and your privilege to help others.
