a question i pondered

i came across a question the other day that made me think..
the question was "what would you do if you saw a person becoming discriminated because of their race in a store by the cashier? Would you stand up or leave it alone?"

In my mind I can't see why someone wouldn't stand up for the person being mistreated. Its the right thing to do, and if we keep silent are we not just as guilty as the person discriminating? If you turn your head and act like it's not happening it's the same thing as you discriminating against them. I think it is up to us to let people know that, that kind of abuse is not acceptable. Take a stand you never know how you might change someones life or perspective.
