LeBron James posted a photo of himself wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirt Wednesday in response to the death of George Floyd after a Minneapolis police officer pinned Floyd to the ground Monday. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Wednesday called on prosecutors to file criminal charges against a white police officer shown on a bystander’s video pressing his knee into the neck of a handcuffed African-American man who later died at a hospital.
The officer, along with three others involved in the apprehension of George Floyd, 46, were dismissed from the police department as the FBI on Tuesday opened an investigation of the incident, a day after the deadly confrontation unfolded in Minnesota’s largest city.
Many African Americans no longer view criminal justice as just. They have seen so many times when an all-white jury acquits white police officers for murdering young black men. In the eyes of the all-white jury, “Black lives does not Matter”.
African Americans have heard this last-minute cries of dying African American men in the hands of the police, I CAN’T BREATHE!!!. Today African Americans can’t breathe!
