“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant…”

Art of Quotation

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.

If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”

Desmond Tutu, cleric, theologian, religious figure, activist, South African

  1. By-standers viewing injustice without taking action to help the oppressed are certainly guilty of injustice themselves. Easy to say when sitting at home in front of a computer as I am now. Harder to follow through and actually do something.
