That Other Viral Killer: Systemic, Enduring, Transmissible, Global Racism

A note from Benevity Founder and Chairman, Bryan de Lottinville
Blog

I don’t profess to be a civil rights activist, nor particularly informed on this issue. I can’t pretend to know what it’s like to be Black or Brown or otherwise marginalized, or to have to fear for my life in even the most innocuous of interactions. The worst I’ve ever been is poor. Subsidized education and likely my whiteness helped me evolve to the ‘entitled but empathetic spectator’ status that I hold. But on this topic, I’m forlorn. I’m heartbroken. I’m embarrassed. I’m ashamed. And I know that I’m not alone in feeling that way. After all, as we say at Benevity, We Are We.

We know African-Americans, including many of our own employees, are afraid for their lives and the lives of their children. No one should have to raise a child in fear. No one should suffer mental anguish, physical violence, or death – such as in the case of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor or countless others before them – because of racism and discrimination.
