WoW—Today is Juneteenth, a celebration of freedom and the end of slavery. But racism and racial inequality abound. We know what’s right. But we need courage to call out and denounce racism all around us and even within us. Ending racism means changing hearts, which calls for anti-racism. Not being racist isn’t enough. Racial inequality is a long game that those of us with privilege need to identify and correct. This is a team effort—one that won’t easily be solved—that calls for many leaders to act with conscience. /Monsanto out!
