The academic community of the Institute of Collective Health of the Federal University of Bahia, represented by its faculty, staff and students, hereby demonstrates its repudiation and indignation at the fact that occurred with Professor Carlos Teles, last Thursday ( 19), in a supermarket on Estrada do Coco / Lauro de Freitas.

Professor Carlos Teles is a black man, professor at UEFS, ISC / UFBA and a researcher at Fiocruz. He was the victim of racial discrimination when being asked by a security guard to store his belongings in the store’s locker. Other customers entering and circulating at the property at the same time were not approached equally.

Facts like this are the result of racism expressed in the daily life of black people in the country. Racism that violent and sickens our population.

The courageous attitude of confrontation rescues the affronted dignity and helps to combat the attitudes of discrimination.

We express our support and that the victim’s conduct in reporting and disclosing the event encourages us never to silence.
