As someone who participated in the fight to ensure civil rights for all regardless of race back in the 1960s, I can tell you that protests work. We Americans have abolished slavery, given women the right to vote, gotten rid of Jim Crow, and have made real progress in ensuring equal rights for LGBT people — all because people who believe in social justice have spoken up.

But I can see how this must really piss you off, so of course you have to belittle it, and claim that it has no effect.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
