At Waxman Strategies, we recognize systemic racism pervades our society. It impacts our personal biases and prejudices. And it impacts our institutions. The answer is not going to come from striving for color blindness, but from embracing and respecting different backgrounds. And we must not lose sight that white privilege exists and has existed since the dawn of our republic.
The protests taking place across our country will ensure the death of George Floyd will be remembered as a tragic injustice. But these are different times. Today, not only public safety, but public health directly and disproportionately threatens African Americans and other minority populations.
We stand with those demanding the promise of our Constitution is upheld. And we stand with those striving for a more perfect union that brings peace, freedom and equal opportunity to all, including, and especially, those who were initially unmentioned in the Constitution.
