To current brothers of any status, alumni of Mu Omicron, and the greater community:
Our membership has been closely watching recent events unfold. We would like to take a moment to denounce systemic racism, and its impact on our community. Our organization stands with those fighting for a better future; a fight that has been going on for far too long. We urge you to remember individuals who cannot be replaced, both fighting for their lives and those who are no longer with us. As the saying goes, “history repeats itself,” and it is now doing so with more force and volume than many of us have ever experienced in our lifetimes. As the next generation of young adults, we must stand against those that see it fit to perpetuate hateful rhetoric and discriminatory behavior. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery are not the first unarmed Black people murdered by police. These are NOT isolated incidents.
As a diverse organization around the country with notable chapters at HBCUs, it is our civic duty to encourage the public we serve – musicians or not – to observe, listen, educate, and act. Everyone must use their voice to contribute to a community of acceptance and equality. We will never tolerate discrimination or racism of any kind and we will always strive for the highest, both in our chapter and the greater community.
