Ben & Jerry’s Calls to Dismantle Criminal-Justice System ‘Rooted in White Supremacy’

'This system can’t be reformed...'

Ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s said this week the criminal-justice system “can’t be reformed,” is “rooted in white supremacy,” and should be defunded following the shooting of Daunte Wright.

“The murder of #DaunteWright is rooted in white supremacy and results from the intentional criminalization of Black and Brown communities,” the company claimed in a tweet.

“This system can’t be reformed,” Ben & Jerry’s added. “It must be dismantled.”

Wright was shot during a traffic stop after he began resisting arrest. The officer who shot him believed she was using her Taser when she instead fired her weapon, according to the Brooklyn Center, Minnesota police chief.

Ben & Jerry’s has become increasingly outspoken about its leftist beliefs.

Last year, the company partnered with failed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is known for kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against “racial injustice,” to bring attention to the Black Lives Matter movement.

“We both care deeply about and focus much of our time and energy on advancing issues of social and racial justice. We both think ice cream creates joy and is a great way to bring people together,” Ben & Jerry’s said at the time.
