Yesterday, on Blackout Tuesday, we listened to the overwhelming outpouring of grief, frustration and feelings of injustice.
Following the murder of George Floyd, the protests, and now the violence that is consuming many cities in the United States, we at Crux want to add our voice, unequivocally, to the rising tide of support for true racial equality and peaceful protest.
For too long both explicit and perniciously subtle forms of racism, and subsequent inequalities, have been allowed to endure. These underlying issues must be addressed and our society must change. We hope for an immediate end to the violence and the destruction of property that distract attention from these urgent societal issues. And we more fervently hope for — and will do our part to work for — a more just society that treats every single member with equal respect, justice, and opportunity.
