“Systemic and institutionalized racism are the defining civil rights and social justice issues of our time,” says the statement signed by Your Friends at Ben & Jerry’s. “We’ve come to understand that to be silent about the violence and threats to the lives and well-being of Black people is to be complicit in that violence and those threats.”

The statement also specifically signals the recent police officer shooting death of an African-American man in Charlotte, and connects to a separate landing page on the company’s website titled “7 Ways We Know Systemic Racism Is Real.”
