"The ultimate measure of a person is not where you stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where you stand in times of challenge and controversy."Martin Luther King, Jr.
We are deeply shocked by the terrible tragedy of the violent death of George Floyd in Minnesota on 25 May 2020. This incident was not the first and - unless we stand up and resist - it will not be the last.
We didn't have to think twice about bringing forward our anti-racism campaign "Bassists Against Racists", which was actually planned for another time, in order not to remain silent but to send a clear signal against racism and discrimination.
We as Flame2Fame have always stood for diversity and a peaceful coexistence of all cultures, religions, skin colours and beliefs. Instead of continuing to accept the division of our society, we should approach each other, show consideration, help each other and reach out to each other.
The proceeds of our "Bassists against Racists" campaign go to the "Foundation against Racism". The foundation has been actively dealing with the issue of racism for several years and has been coordinating the International Weeks against Racism since 2016.
We would like to thank Mr. Hans Peter Wilfer, CEO of Framus Warwick, for kindly granting us the licence to use the claims "Bassists against Racists" and "Guitarists against Racists" for our current product line.
