Does having pity lead to action? Does having guilt make us more likely to stand up for equality?
When I come across posts like this I immediately begin to analyze my environment. I’m torn between a space of frustration and heartache. I feel these photos and many like them, provide a spectacle. I hesitate to think they lead to action.
Are these current day minstrels? Do they lead us to be “thankful” that we were born into a wealthy country and take us no further? As you can see I’m torn in many directions when I’m presented with images of poverty.
