Racism is a thing of the past but still it runs in todays society. Being a black in the US is not all rosy as the media portrays it. Even some activists say the dispensation of justice on the black community is minimal since blacks are viewed as arrogant and source of all criminal activities.
A twenty year black man has lost his lives in the cruel hands of the police in a rather disturbing scene. It happened in Minneapolis Town a few meters from where George Floyd was killed. Reports indicate that he was shot at point blank range by the said officer. Some of the onlookers said that the officer wanted to use a teaser gun on him but might have confused it with a gun.
This incident has rekindled the memories of slain George Floyd who was choked to death by officers from the same Minneapolis Department. His death led to creation of a movement named Black Lives Matter that saw even the American celebs like Kanye West and Floyd Mayweather amongst others join.
Huge Protests are ongoing in Minneapolis town led by the BLM followers. This has led to a statement by the US president Joe Bidden urging people to calm down and he will ensure justice is served to the victim.
