Alex Honnold is going to be the recipient of some hate today, unfollows and “stick-to-what-you-know” for the crime of sharing his thoughts, but even if you don’t agree with him or his political or social views (I prefer the Malcolm X view that the greatest risk for African Americans is dependency), we should all be adult enough to respect someone else’s opinion, respect the right to be able to speak without fear of retaliation or damage to the good character (unfollowing someone is a form of political violence, telling them you’re unfollowing them like posting dog shit through their letterbox), and neither view it as a personal insult or a reason to insult a person.
