I'm apathetic to certain groups, as I lack the knowledge, and I'm not informed about it, as it's something not as visible in my eyes. I also know I'm aware of certain groups yet, I don't really take actions. One of the reason is I have my fears that I would get affected as well.
( It's similar to bullying at school, sometimes it feels impossible to step in because of the fear of becoming the one bullied)
I suppose this fear comes because I'm part of a minority as well, but I understand we need to group up and support one another if we want to make some change.
I know in some cases, being part of the minority or group, you are aware of the things that happens in the surrounding. However, it's hard to come out and talk, or act about it. Sometimes I endure certain things, just because of fear of denial.
I guess in this case acting more like the majority, and internally being cut into pieces, but being able to live as if there's no problem, with the kinda sorta same privileges.
I don't personally try to tone police, but I do know my family members always have this issue. To some extent I can agree that, those certain conversation don't really need that tone. Soon enough both of them are just arguing about the Tone and becomes less about the issue... I've tried to calm them down but it takes a while...
To engage, I feel that I need to get more confident. To some extent I'll need some leadership.
