Americans “Too Timid” In Confronting Hate

Late in the evening on Christmas day, Stephanie Pazmino slashed a black, transgender man after he offered her a subway seat. “I don’t want to sit next to black people,”

Sabine Heinlein, in a powerful article for The Daily Beast, argues that Americans have become too timid when it comes to confronting hate (reported incidents hace increased significantly since the election of Donald Trump).

“In Germany, we were taught over and over again that Hitler came to power because ordinary people were afraid to stand up and speak out. Americans could stand to learn that lesson now.”
