Regarding neutrality

“IF YOU ARE NEUTRAL IN SITUATIONS OF INJUSTICE, YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE SIDE OF THE OPPRESSOR. IF AN ELEPHANT HAS ITS TAIL OF A MOUSE AND YOU SAY THAT YOU ARE NEUTRAL, THE MOUSE WILL NOT APPRECIATE YOUR NEUTRALITY.”

– Desmond Tutu

Damn right. I love this man.  I had the pleasure of meeting former Archbishop Desmond Tutu this past year in Cape Town.  Never before have I met such a down-to-earth, steadfast, charismatic, devoted individual.
