If you don’t know what to do about racism and white supremacy, getting started on educating yourself and acknowledging your own white privilege (unconscious prejudice) is a good place to start. First of all, please educate yourself on all the violent hate crimes that have been happening against people of color, especially black people.
Justice For George
[TRIGGER WARNING] George Floyd was arrested on Monday, May 25 in Minneapolis, America. Important to note is that George was cooperative, but still, he was brutally forced to the ground by police officer Derek Chauvin who pushed his knee to George’s neck for eight minutes with two other police officers kneeling on his lower half and a third police officer standing by. He eventually lost consciousness and died later in the hospital. A video of the arrest surfaced not much later that showed George begging for his life, letting the officers know that he couldn’t breathe and that his stomach and neck hurt. Chauvin didn’t budge and kept suffocating him.
Following the backlash of the video, the four officers present at the scene were fired. The three police officers who sat on George’s lower half and who stood by haven’t been charged. But as of yesterday, ex-police officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Which means he has been charged for accidentally killing a man. Which is bullshit. You don’t accidentally kill a man when he told you for eight minutes that he couldn’t breathe and was hurting. What happened to George Floyd is murder and those four police officers should be rightfully charged so.
