Writing Social Justice: Together We Can Change the World
While we have come a long way on social justice in America, we still have a long way to go to achieve liberty and justice for all. White fragility is a real problem in America.
Daily, the news is full of such headlines:
Immigrants are being mistreated at the southern border.
A Muslim ban is implemented.
Police shoot innocent black citizens.
A tormented student shoots up a school.
A powerful man sexually assaults a young woman and blames the victim.
White Supremacists protest in our streets.
A priest molests a child, and the church covers up the crime.
We, the people must not be a forgotten slogan or an unfulfilled promise. Note, the words aren’t “We white people.” We realize the dream of America when all lives matter to all of us.
Why should an immigrant worry about deportation?
Why should a student worry about school violence?
Why shouldn’t black lives matter to white people?
Why doesn’t the Catholic Church put an end to pedophilia in the clergy?
Why can’t corporate America put people over profit?
Why can’t powerful men stop preying on less powerful women?
These are the social justice topics of my Zachary Blake Legal Thrillers. Ripped from the headlines, these social justice novels will tug at your heartstrings, make you think about the plight of others, and, perhaps, take steps to make this a better country for all despite race, creed, color, and religion.
One book, one author, one reader can change the world. This is my passion. This is my dream. Won’t you join me? Together, we can change the world.
