Ben and Jerry’s proves that representation matters, even if it’s ice cream. This week, the company’s founders made a powerful political statement about systematic and institutionalized racism. The ice cream giant took to their site to express where they stand on #BlackLivesMatter.
We respect and value the commitment to our communities that those in law enforcement make, and we respect the value of every one of their lives.
But we do believe that — whether Black, brown, white, or blue — our nation and our very way of life is dependent on the principle of all people being served equal justice under the law. And it’s clear, the effects of the criminal justice system are not color blind.
To celebrate and applaud the brand, Black Twitter shared their favorite
