We must all be a part of dismantling white supremacy in its many forms, including and especially racial profiling.
The University of Minnesota Press is in sympathy and solidarity with the grieving family of Daunte Wright, killed by police during a traffic stop near Minneapolis on Sunday, April 11, 2021, and acknowledges the trauma and fear experienced by the Black members of our community today and every day. In order for our world to be more equitable and just, we must all be a part of dismantling white supremacy in its many forms, including and especially racial profiling. In the shadow of the Derek Chauvin trial, we affirm, once again and always: BLACK LIVES MATTER.
