People are outraged after the murder of George Floyd due to his race at the hands of a white police officer Derek Chauvin was caught on video. They have taken to the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota where it happened, to show that this act of racism will not be tolerated by the community. They will not be silenced.

When the video of the police officer with his knee placed right on Floyd’s neck for eight minutes surfaced on the internet, it sent shockwaves to the black community who have been dealing with the unlawful killing of black man Ahmaud Arbery.

You can hear Floyd in the video saying “Please, I can’t breathe.” Floyd’s family called for the arrests of all of the officers involved in his death. They encouraged peaceful protests. However, his brother spoke to CNN saying “I can’t stop people right now because they have pain. They have the same pain that I feel. I want everything to be peaceful but I can’t make everybody be peaceful. It’s hard.”

Floyd himself was an activist that was fighting for change and peace for the black community. Now, people are left wondering why such a brutally violent act had to take place in order for the state of Minnesota to recognize that the issue of racism is very present in their community.

People are tired of seeing black men dying. The protests are an attempt to show that justice needs to be served. Especially in this case after each of the members of the police precinct involved in the murder were not immediately fired.

The four officers involved in Floyd’s death have finally been fired, and protesters gathered around Chauvin’s home. They wrote the word “murderer” in his driveway. A federal investigation is underway to determine if any of the officers will face any charges.
