This is without a doubt one of the toughest times in our country’s history, as we continue to fight a horrific pandemic and the resulting economic destruction that it is bringing, we are finally coming face-to-face with the long-term effects of racial injustice. This was a longtime coming. Watching tens of thousands take the streets to speak out against fear, inhumanity, dehumanization, and oppression, is truly inspiring for the dedication it represents and at the same time immensely tragic that society has let it get this bad.
Sistemo Design supports Black Lives Matters, we support and demand that racial injustices end and cease to exist. There is zero point for this to be going on, all humans are created equal, it says that in our constitution, it says that in every school and history book in America. All men are created equal.
Today; neighborhoods, downtown plazas, and abandoned streets have felt the heat and frustration that minorities have been facing for centuries. But those fires will be extinguished, and eventually the damage will be repaired. What remains, however, and will never be extinguished are the images of George Floyd and the many that came before him, whether famous or not, there have been millions of silenced voices out there. It is in their name that we come together to embrace the fight for equality and justice as a common cause, because the only way to even begin this process is going to be collectively, as a group, through dialogue and more importantly empathy and forgiveness. I thought that all men were created equal.
Sistemo Design has started an educational push called EQUAL. Please support us by learning something, anything about injustice, oppression, color blindness, racism, and dehumanization. You’ll never be able to walk in our shoes but you sure can understand why. The more we learn the more open our minds will become. My girlfriend is African American and being a Latino man, I have learned so much. Please continue to fight and educate yourselves.
In honor of George Floyd, and every last Black life and minority who faced the oppression, hate and distain that continues to be launched at them on a daily basis.
