Justice can’t be served until somebody is incarcerated. Somebody needs to pay a penalty for taking this man’s life. It breaks my heart that we have to talk about this in America in 2020. They keep saying it’s going to change. As James Baldwin said: How much more time do you need?
What made my blood boil is that the police officer had his knee on the guy’s neck with his hands in his pocket. If you feel there’s a threat, there’s no way you’re putting your hands in your pocket. The man is handcuffed, lying flat on the ground.
George Floyd is telling them “I can’t breathe. My stomach hurt. You’re going to kill me.” He’s pleading for his life and the officer is looking in the camera with his hands in his pocket unconcerned. It’s heartbreaking. We just watched a man die on live TV.
Think about what hasn’t been captured on camera over the last 100 to 200 years. And they still do it because there are no consequences. There has to be consequences that come with these actions in order for it to stop and change.
Dr. King said, “Riots are the language of the unheard.” Blacks are tired of not having their voices heard, sending hashtags, being patient, waiting 400 years for progress to be made. How much more time is needed? Racism hasn’t gotten worse, we’ve gotten better at documenting it.
The Boston Tea Party was about taxation w/o representation. White ppl got tired of their voices not being heard & protested (rioted). Blacks want their voices heard so they protest (riot) & now it serves no purpose. White ppl riot, nothing is more American than protests (riots).
“Justice will not be served until those unaffected are as outraged as those who are”. Ben Franklin
