William Wilson Posted over 3 years ago Bryan Stevenson: We need to talk about an injustice Tify, please consider that Mr. Stevenson made the reference to apartheid not to compare what went on in your country to what went on here or to say that our situation was equal or worse. I might have used the same word because that word--apartheid--is a powerful word that conveys a sense of injustice and simple wrongness in describing a society where race is what makes a difference in how one is treated. The word apartheid makes the injustice to African Americans in this country understandable in a way that other words can't. Give Mr. Stevenson the benefit of the doubt. His message has a place in your country and mine and we shouldn't ignore it because of one word.
