The Boy Scouts of America organization has released a lengthy letter iterating their support for the BLM organization and explaining the implementation of new diversity measures.
“The Boy Scouts of America stands with black families and the black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter. This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.”
“We will also continue to listen more, learn more and do more to promote a culture in which every person feels that they belong, are respected and are valued in Scouting, in their community and across America,” adding that it will review the names of everything in their organization, including any and all insignia, to “ensure that symbols of oppression are not in use today or in the future.”
“As a movement, we are committed to working together with our employees, volunteers, youth members, and communities so we can all become a better version of ourselves and continue to prepare young people to become the leaders of character our communities and our country need to heal and grow,” concludes the statement.
The above comes from a May 15 story on the Post Millennial.
