“Opposing wrong makes a right.” — Onitaset Kumat
Oftentimes we hear “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” Someone may add, “But it makes things even.” It’s only in a sense. The truth is that “Opposing wrong makes a right.” Because “rightness” is not “evenness” but “balance” and wrong upsets the “balance.” This simple wisdom is available to your community through African Blood Siblings Community Centers.

Fable: The “Unwronging” Innocent
By Onitaset Kumat
Were I beside him then, I would ask “Would you prefer her dead?,” while I abandoned his company to address the man accosting one of his sisters.
Unfortunately, then, I was not. Only did I hear his report, that upon his return down the sidewalk of the confrontation, he looked on the sprung out deceased and recalled his words, “That I do no wrong, I am innocent.”
Were I beside him then, I would rally my brothers to this woman’s protection, reprimand the attacker and warn the sister that she must part with this villain. From these advices would she break from the man, meet one more fitting, and happily live with respectful descendants until old age.
Unfortunately, then, I was not. She died on the streets at nineteen. Pummelled as no one came to her rescue.
If ever you are beside a passerby, confident of innocence, excusing abuses, rally them otherwise, or prefer the abused dead, for it is wrong to do no right.
