Murder of George Floyd and Subsequent Racist Violence

We, the faculty and staff of the UNC Charlotte Department of Philosophy, condemn the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, and all other ongoing assaults against Black life and futurity.

In the wake of the March 2021 spa shootings in Atlanta, GA, we join our college (CLAS) in asserting:

We cannot move in the name of social justice and eliminating anti-Black racism without acknowledging and denouncing the hateful, violent, and deadly acts against Asian and Asian Americans which has increased dramatically over the last two years, and has accumulated into the killing of 8 people, including 6 Asian women in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 16. CLAS’ Race and Social Justice initiative is in its early stages of identifying and rooting out systemic racism within our College and building policy to protect all members from injustice based on any social  category. We stand with our students, faculty, administrators, and staff of Asian descent and stand against hate, xenophobia, and any acts of injustice which targets this community.
