Black Lives Matter
As we at LowDown Brewery + Kitchen have been working at keeping our business alive and preparing to re-open our doors, a historical social justice and civil rights movement has begun and gained momentum. LowDown has a voice much more powerful than our individual voices and it is our responsibility to use it at this time.
We have a problem in this country. We have always had a problem in this country. Racism is systemic in our culture, affecting the body as a whole. The body is each individual in our society as well as the institutions in our society both public and private. Many people in our society maintain some level of denial of this systemic racism. These people are flat out wrong. Many
people in our society are acutely aware of the undeniable existence of systemic racism, but they choose to ignore the problem. It is much easier to be happy when you ignore the problem. Many people live a life that allows
them to ignore the problem. That itself is a large part of the problem.
There is a bumper sticker out there that reads “If you’re not angry then you’re not paying attention”. That statement resonates right now. There are many people in our society who choose not to participate in politics and would rather just let others make the decisions. This is not the time to be one
of those people. Right now, we all need to pay attention. We all need to take an active interest. This is not the time to be a contrarian and have a debate. This is the time to get on board with this undeniably just and morally pure movement.
LowDown stands with the protestors. LowDown stands with the movement.
LowDown will not stand for any hint of racism within our organization. LowDown has always been a place of absolute inclusion, but we will now work harder, each and every one of us, to continually cultivate and maintain a culture where everyone is treated equally and any indication otherwise will be met with swift action rather than hesitation.
LowDown genuinely hopes that the movement will maintain the momentum that has been created. We hope that the institutional changes needed come at whatever price necessary. If institutions need to be painfully torn down and rebuilt from scratch with new cultures, then LowDown hopes those steps are taken. But it’s not enough to hope. We have to take action; each of us. We cannot continue to turn a blind eye to racism and social injustice. We cannot make excuses for other people’s intolerance and sleep well at night
because we know that we personally are not intolerant. Let us be clear, we are not promoting confrontation. We are suggesting ostracization. There should be social consequences for harboring hate in the form of intolerance.
LowDown hopes that this moment in history will turn into a cultural demarcation and we hope that it is worldwide. When we view this time through a historical lens, we know which side LowDown will be on. We will be
on the side of social justice. The side of tolerance and inclusion. The side of
compassion and love
