Statement from 100 Black Men of America, Inc. in response to the horrifying events that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia
The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. is profoundly saddened by the loss of life and deeply disturbed by the mobilization and organized bigotry that descended on Charlottesville, Virginia on Friday and Saturday.
First, we offer our heartfelt condolences to those who lost their lives, those who were injured, their families and the community.
We expect the full force of the United States Government, local law enforcement, and elected representatives to bring to justice those responsible for inciting the violence that led to unfathomable carnage and deadly outcomes.
The vile spirit of hatred and violence permeating in this country will continue until those in power take an aggressive and intentional stand against domestic terrorists, white supremacist, Nazi and white nationalists groups.
