I can’t breathe. It is happening yet again. And on Memorial Day.
Police Brutality is an American tradition perpetrated on African Americans the year-round.
With echos of Eric Garner, Minneapolis Police Officer Derik Chauvin kneeled on an unarmed and handcuffed African American man’s neck for over 8 minutes while he cried “I can’t breathe.” The man, George Floyd died in police custody.
Police brutality and African Americans -something old, something new, something borrowed….something definitely blue.
When can we expect this tragic American tradition to change? …don’t hold your breath!
