Illustration for article titled Man Waiting To See How Few More Decades Of Racial Violence Play Out Before Taking Action

DES MOINES, IA—Saying he planned to hold off for another 20 or 30 years and then assess where things stand, local man Trevor Russell was reportedly waiting to see how a few more decades of racial violence played out before taking any action, sources confirmed Monday. “I think I’ll just sit back and take a long look at how institutionalized attacks against disenfranchised minority populations fall into place over the next couple generations before I really get involved,” said Russell, 34, adding that he would have a much fuller picture of how people of color were being systematically abused by then and thus be better prepared to take a stand. “Let’s see how all the violations of human rights unfold by 2040 or 2050 before I publicly commit to resisting bigotry and hatred. I don’t want to rush into anything without really having all the facts first.” Russell added that a few decades wasn’t a hard deadline and that he’d defer action further if he felt he still needed more information.
