Re: The racial time bomb-USA

Reading about Tyre Nichols over the weekend and yet another tragic, unnecessary and brutal killing of a man at the hands of US police. Looking back to the summer of 2020 and the collective madness that took hold following the killing of George Floyd, the riots, the violence, the kneeling, BLM, the toppling of statues, the cancelling of Gone with the Wind etc. it does make one think how an issue that was purely about police brutality was captured and presented as being solely about race.
Finally some justice for some of the many peaceful BLM George Floyd protestors.

New York agrees to pay millions to George Floyd protesters who sued over police treatment

“The march was orderly and peaceful. There were no instances of violence, no confrontations with police or anyone else, and no harm to property,” said the class-action complaint, which was filed in September after two separate lawsuits were merged.

After encircling the group, police officers allegedly pepper-sprayed and struck protesters with batons before arresting them, according to the complaint.
