    Our criminal justice system is, well, unjust.

    But there isn't a hierarchy here about which should be loudly protested, and which should not.

    We should express outrage about all of this.

    The human rights abuse/war crimes committed with impunity by a powerful nation against people of other nations is particularly troublesome, especially when so many remain silent. This is the intentional criminal murder of people by the hand of our own government, in which multiple deaths occur in a single instance of time. It is a horror of astounding proportion, and that is not an exaggeration. It demands outrage.

    Minimizing it or trivializing it because there are also other abuses going on inside our borders isn't productive. All injustice should be opposed.

    The fact is, there is so much injustice coming from so many directions in our society it is staggering, and difficult to address each issue everyday, so as to give equal treatment. To do so would be impossible.

    And I would agree that the mistreatment of people of color in our society is ignored, in the same way that our war crimes are ignored. Ignorance is everywhere, and is an equal opportunity trait.
