I’ve been struggling to find the perfect words, but I simply can’t wait any longer to say something. As CEO of Horizon Investments, I feel it’s my duty to condemn racism, discrimination, brutality and injustice in all forms and to affirm, unequivocally, that Black lives matter. The time is long overdue for me, and I hope for every business leader, to say: “This must end. We must do better.” But words aren’t enough. We have to do the work. We must use our leadership voices and privilege to take action — meaningful, sustained action — to end the systemic oppression of Black people in America.
