Statement on Systemic Racism
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at San Diego State University speaks out with outrage and sadness against the systemic racism plaguing our nation, leading most recently to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade and other African Americans. We condemn the many actions of violence and hate inflicted upon African Americans that have not been filmed or publicized. We denounce the systemic racism that manifests routinely in the lives of our students in acts of discrimination, microaggression, stereotype threat, and marginalization, and other harmful and humiliating actions.
We stand in support of our African American students. We stand in support of our Latinx students, our Native American students, any students of color, our LGBTQ+ students, our differently-abled students, our veterans, our first-generation students, and for all groups marginalized in our society.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will show our support in our actions. We commit to providing space to amplify their voices, and to being active allies. We commit to making our places of learning inclusive, safe, and fertile for fostering their success. We commit to standing up against discrimination in our classrooms, in our labs, and at San Diego State at large. We know that by supporting and empowering our diverse student body, we enrich our academic excellence, innovation, and success. #BlackLivesMatter
