Social injustice appears so prevalently, so persistently, and so universally — that perhaps it must be a fundamental aspect of life’s narrative. Is it the fire that fuels society? Is it the lesson drilled in-perpetuity? If it’s not one struggle, it’s another.
Society’s attempts at resolution come in the form of temporary band-aids. And those witness to the suffering must carry on with their own lives, powerless against the depths of injustice. Frustrated, they must accept it, perhaps justify it, and ultimately ignore it.
