Why It Matters

During the pandemic, our country witnessed pain and tragedy. Not just those who have lost their lives to COVID-19, but those who have lost their lives at the hands of an unjust system that perpetuates police brutality because of the color of their skin. With every irresponsible action, there must be accountability, but in this country, it is seldom that truth and justice prevail. Even though, we're facing a pandemic, people from all backgrounds, color, and orientation have taken matters into their own hands and exercise their right to protest and speak out about the inequalities that persist on a daily basis.

Police brutality and racial inequities have plagued this country since it was founded. Although there have been strides to find equal footing amongst each other, these issues keep persisting without the notion of taking accountability, especially for Black Americans who are treated unfairly. To be able to walk on the street without fear of being stopped by a police officer is a privilege that Black Americans don't have.

At Hot Boi Chili Oil, we want to do as much as we can to help fight for justice and equity in this country. With every order, $2 goes to the Equal Justice Initiative.
