You are forced to choose a side.
You have freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition based on America’s First Amendment. You have the right (and privilege) to protest, rebel, and etc.

Death and violence has never solved or ended racism at all.
Look, racism has been going on forever (way before our time). More bloodshed and hatred to humanity.
