The slow and painful killing of Floyd has wakened the consciousness of millions around the World. Why and how does a country like America allow the police force to constantly harass, frame, and kill a segment of its citizens? African Americans have to bear the heaviest burden in making American a great nation. While the overt racist criminal justice system in America continues to baffles the rest of the world, African Americans and other Americans came out in Mass this weekend to protests against police brutality. For African Americans, the hard choice was either to die of Corona Virus or stay at home and get killed by the police. Neither of these choices is easy but appears to be the only two choices present before them.
While the majority of African Americans are dying of Corona Virus and suffering the most from economic collapse, Trump and his administration are advocating violence against them and demanding from governors to be tough. Even as many political leaders affirmed the right of protesters to express themselves, they urged the demonstrators to put on face masks and preserve social distancing, each to defend themselves. For many young and angry youths.. they do not see any future.
