"When I reflect on the terms 'liberty' and 'freedom', I think of how I've learned so much from social media, which I have unlimited access to, and how I became vocal through it. In this country, we have the ability to be vocal. I had the ability to educate people with my voice. And the fact that it was so easy to organize in my school, and that the City government let me rally in front of their buildings... I can do all of those things because of liberty and freedom, but it's also about having the right to fighting for rights being taken away. It's ironic like that." - Olivia Sandom

"Cuando reflexiono sobre el término 'libertad', pienso en cómo he aprendido tanto de las redes sociales, a las que tengo acceso ilimitado, y en cómo me convertí en una portavoz de la libertad. En este país todos podemos convertirnos en portavoces de la libertad. Podemos educar a la gente con nuestra propia voz. Y el hecho de que en mi escuela fuera tan fácil organizar este tipo de actividades, o que el gobierno de la ciudad me dejase convocar marchas en frente de sus edificios... Puedo hacer todas esas cosas gracias a la libertad, pero también se trata de tener derecho a luchar por los derechos que a uno le están quitando. Suena irónico, visto de este modo" - Olivia Sandom

Un contra-manifestante grita a los policías antidisturbios tras los rumores de una marcha planeada por el KKK y otros grupos de supremacía blanca, en Durham, Carolina del Norte, Estados Unidos. EFE

Si es cierto, como algunos afirman, que por el aumento en la estridencia de los supremacistas blancos es aceptable mostrar prejuicios raciales, entonces los blancos comenzarán a sentir el dolor de ser asociados con un pequeño grupo radical de racistas extremos.
