Speak out for your beliefs

Transcripts available in the following languages:

When you feel that you are right, you should speak out because if it could happen to you, it could happen to anybody. As long as you're a minority, they can pick on you and they can incarcerate you as they did us because you're a minority. But if you get out there and speak out and speak out loud, I think you will be able to combat those type of things. As you notice, that the Jewish people, they stress the Holocaust year after year after year until people are sick and tired of listening to that. But what they're doing is to, telling the people, “Don't forget. Don't forget that this could happen to you, the Holocaust.” And in the same manner, we should go out there and tell the people and make them remember that this should never happen again.
