ASU Graduate College: Racism has no place anywhere

On Memorial Day 2020, George Floyd’s life ended due to a fatal encounter with police in Minneapolis. The anger surrounding Floyd’s death, and the similar deaths of Black Americans across the country, represents a failure of policing but also, our failure to acknowledge the legacy of structural racism built over centuries to devalue black lives in our communities, in our economy, and in our democracy. 

Racism has no place--anywhere.
