An ignorant person is unaware of an underlying issue and hence, holds no opinion about it, whereas an indifferent person may be fully or partially aware of the problem and yet chooses to take a passive stance on the same. ~www.quora.com

    Social Unrest: Be Informed. Try to Stay Calm. Do Your Part.

    Harlem Boys Choir

    "Glory" Common & John Legend

    One Program for Minorities

    Vocabulary: Here are some terminologies that are relevant to meaningful discussions about the social unrest we are experiencing today.

    Read, view, and listen. Come prepared on Tuesday to discuss the difference between equity and equality? 

    zeitgeist the defining spirit or mood of a period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time; the general mood or quality of a period of history, as shown by the ideas, beliefs, etc. common at the time

    fairness is the quality of making judgments that are free from discrimination. Judges, umpires, and teachers should all strive to practice fairness.

     equity is the state or quality of being fair and impartial

     indifference is the trait of lacking interest or enthusiasm in things. When you feel indifference for something, you neither like it nor dislike it.

    If you are a person who feels a lot of indifference, you probably say "eh," a lot.

    You just don't care much. 

     indifference can be compared to apathy, which means "lack of concern," though apathy is a little stronger: means you don't care whether your friends call you; indifference means you don't care what movie you end up seeing — you don't have a strong preference for any of the choices.

     stereotypes are fixed, simplistic (usually wrong) conceptions of traits, behaviors, and attitudes of a particular group of people.

     prejudice is a negative attitude about members of a group. Prejudice translated into behavior is called discrimination, Prejudice often develops through stereotypes.

     discrimination is behaving differently, usually unfairly, toward group members. 

     race refers to groups of people who have differences and similarities in biological traits considered by society to be socially significant, meaning that people treat other people differently because of them. 

     Racism, then, is prejudice based on socially significant physical features.

     

    "Your life begins to end the moment you start being silent about the things that matter." Martin Luther Ling, Jr.

     Do not be indifferent. 

    Harlem Boys’ Choir – “Let There Be Peace On Earth”

    Lyrics

    Let there be peace on earth

    And let it begin with me. 

    Let there be peace on earth 

    The peace that was meant to be. 

    With God as our Father 

    Brothers all are we. 

    Let me walk with my brother 

    In perfect harmony.

    Let peace begin with me 

    Let this be the moment now. 

    With every step I take 

    Let this be my solemn vow. 

    To take each moment.

    And live each moment 

    With peace eternally. 

    Let there be peace on earth, 

    And let it begin with me. 

    Let there be peace on earth 

    And let it begin with me. 

    Let there be peace on earth 

    The peace that was meant to be. 

    With God as our Father 

    Brothers all are we. 

    Let me walk with my brother 

    In perfect harmony.
