Social Justice = Love

Dr. Cornel West:

For me, justice is what love looks like in public. When you love folk, you hate the fact that they’re being treated unjustly. You loathe the fact that they’re being treated unfairly. And if you don’t do something the rocks are going to cry out because when you talk about justice, you’re not talking about some abstract notion, you’re talking about something you feel deep in your soul – the way you would if you heard Curtis Mayfield play his guitar. You gotta feel.
