These protests against racism and systemic police brutality are many layers deep. People are protesting after the police kill a Black man, then it is quiet and we hope for justice. Sometime later, the same thing happens again. Then we repeat the same process over again. People are tired of protesting with little or no results.

Police departments are spending millions of dollars on police training, but police are still killing Black men. It is so hard to watch Black men being murdered in broad daylight on television by cops and ex-cops.  Then they walk away like it is part of their jobs to murder us. How many times do we see white people killed on television by cops? Are we coming to another 1968 riot?

The pain, outrage, and desperation have spilled out into the streets all over America.
Minneapolis Police Chief stated, “Silence and inaction is complicity” and “the Floyd incident is a violation of humanity.”

The nation appears to be at a tipping point. Black people are risking their lives in the middle of a pandemic to protest in the streets across the nation.

Over 40 American cities have curfews as of May 31, 2020.
