It’s easy to stand in a crowd. It’s not at all easy to stand alone, let alone being a black teenage boy.
Justin Blackman wasn’t dissuaded from his beliefs yesterday, and stood all alone in his personal 17 minute school walkout. He got tons of love on Twitter after he posted a video in which he said he hoped “all 6 people” were watching, went viral. 48,000 shares, 241,000 likes and a request from CNN to use the video will hopefully keep this young brave activist sustained.
