If You See Something, Say Something. Take A Stand Against Bullying.
Our Silence Is Violence Too.
Our World Must Be A Safe Place For Everyone irrespective of their color, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. If all of us choose to be outraged instead of only a selected few, we can be a better world.
Marcus Rashford is a 23 year old British football player for the Manchester United. He created a taskforce last year to donate free meals to children when school was out because these families were relying on free school meals for their survival.
Recently, he was a victim of cyber bullying on his social media channels. Many other premier league players are being targeted with racist comments and symbols on their posts on different social media accounts. This is what Marcus has posted on his Twitter profile as a reply to what he describes as: “Humanity and social media at its worst.”
“Yes I’m a black man and I live every day proud that I am. No one, or no one comment, is going to make me feel any different. So sorry if you were looking for a strong reaction, you’re just simply not going to get it here. I’m not sharing screenshots. It would be irresponsible to do so and as you can imagine there’s nothing original in them. I have beautiful children of all colors following me and they don’t need to read it. Beautiful colors that should only be celebrated.”

True heroism is minutes, hours, weeks, year upon year of the quiet, precise, judicious exercise of probity and care-with no one there to see or cheer. This is the world. ~ David Foster Wallace
