NEW YORK — Race Forward today decried the killing of Tyre Nichols at the hands of five Memphis Police Department officers. The organization released the following statement:
This is an unbelievably sad day for women’s rights, reproductive justice, racial justice, and our movement for a just, multiracial democracy. Today’s Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is an affront on democracy and equity in this country.
Race Forward mourns with the families and community of the ten people who were killed this past Saturday at a TOPS grocery store in Buffalo, NY, by an 18-year-old white supremacist. The gunman has said his intention was “to kill as many black people as possible,” citing “replacement theory” as his motive while live-streaming the entire act.
Today, almost two years following the slaying of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery while he was jogging in his Brunswick, Georgia neighborhood, the three white men responsible for fatally shooting Arbery have been found guilty of murder.
After three and a half days of jury deliberation, Kyle Rittenhouse has been acquitted of all five charges in the murder of two unarmed men and the shooting injury of a third during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year.
