Why do people stand up for freedom and rights?

People stand up for freedom and rights sometimes for the safety and sometimes because people are not being fair. Blacks and whites should not have to be separated on a bus, nor should they have to drink from separate water fountains. If you think someone or something is not being fair, you should stick up for what you believe is right.
