The network released the following statement earlier today:

“While nothing will erase the heartbreak and loss that continues to be felt across communities, it is clear that Floyd’s death has initiated a new intensity in the fight for justice for Black and Brown people in this country.   

This tragedy has further demonstrated the power that video and the media possess, and in order for BNC to properly honor George Floyd, we must continue to shine a light on incidences of injustice.   

We must perpetually provide a voice for the voiceless; we must challenge inequitable power structures; and we must remain steadfast in our mission to inform and empower people of color.   

What began as a horrific murder caught on video, has inspired people around the world to speak out and spark an enduring movement to condemn police-sanctioned violence against Black people.   

Everyone wants to live in a world where the only result of a routine traffic stop is a citation and not a death certificate.   

The work continues, and we are hopeful that police reform legislation will bring about meaningful change.”
