AND WE HAVE FAILED TO RECOGNIZE IT.
WE FAILED WHEN WE USED WORDS LIKE "DIVERSE HIRING PRACTICES" TO SOFTEN OUR LACK OF WORKPLACE DIVERSITY.
WE FAILED WHEN WE CAN COUNT ON TWO HANDS THE NUMBER OF BLACK PEOPLE THIS AGENCY HAS HIRED IN ITS 40 YEAR HISTORY.
WE FAILED WHEN WE SAID "PORTLAND ISN'T THAT DIVERSE" TO EXCUSE IT.
WE FAILED WHEN IT'S TAKEN US TOO LONG TO SAY THAT BLACK LIVES MATTER.
WE HAVEN'T DONE OUR PART.
AND IT'S TIME WE START TAKING STEPS TO FIX THAT.
WE STAND WITH UNWAVERING SUPPORT OF BLACK LIVES MATTER.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES TO END POLICE BRUTALITY AND SYSTEMIC RACISM.
BECAUSE BLACK LIVES MATTER.
