There are too many people who will cry watching Marley & Me, but don’t care when black people get shot in the street.

Too many who will change their profile pics and write “#JeSuisCharlie”, but who turn the channel when there are images of Syrian refugees dying in the sea.

People who say “all lives matter” and “we don’t have space for refugees in our country”.

Don’t be one of those people.
