The Ohio State Department of Linguistics asserts its unconditional support for Black members of our community and Black communities everywhere as they confront yet another series of unjust, racist attacks on their freedom to live as equal humans. We recognize the pain and rage that these dehumanizing acts of injustice engender and see that these acts emerge from the structural racism that is ingrained in our society. We strongly support the waves of peaceful protests sweeping the country and condemn the systematized police brutality that we have seen growing evidence of since the murder of George Floyd. The lives of our Black students, our Black colleagues, our Black coworkers, our Black friends and neighbors, our Black families — of all Black people — matter.
