Justice for All
Everyone at Green Ronin was outraged by the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, and we support the protests demanding justice in his name, and in the names of countless Black people murdered and mistreated by the police. Black lives matter, and it’s long past time white America acknowledged that, and took responsibility for the deep-seated racism at the roots of our nation’s history, poisoning our nation’s present.
From the very beginning, the American ideal of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” was reserved only for some. That is unjust and cannot be allowed to continue. The injustices of the past must be redressed and, more importantly, present-day systemic racism and white supremacy must be torn out of our nation, root and branch. For there to be peace, there must first be justice. Justice for George Floyd. Justice for Breonna Taylor. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery, and so many, many others. Because until there is justice for them, all of them, there cannot be justice—or peace—for all.
Justice for all. Black lives matter.
