The Struggle Continues for Equality - a Worldwide Movement

And so it is that on this Seventh Day of June, in the year 2020 that the struggle, demonstrated via protests, continues for equality by rejecting racism in the four corners of Planet Earth.

Precipitated by the police killing of an unarmed Black man, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States (US), on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, 2020, protests have greatly widen from that city to now encompass many other jurisdictions across the US and transcending American borders to reach international locations like Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom (UK), France and Australia, among other places. 

Amid the still persisting COVID-19 pandemic, the slaying of George Floyd in the US ruptured an already sensitive and growing disgust for racism and social injustice. The anger-releasing video of a cop calmly choking George Floyd with a knee against his neck as the victim pleaded that he couldn't breathe for a long eight-minutes-forty-six-seconds, amplified, exposed and inflamed the racial suffering too many Black people have had to suffer at the hands of law enforcement for far too long. Ever since than fateful deadly day of martyrdom,  protests, in some form or another against racism and social injustice, have been ongoing across America. 

An often permeated national division and international isolation by Donald Trump's White House over the past three-plus-years, have also added to increase protests against things good Americans consider un-American and non democratic.

History should note that in this current struggle for racial justice that the willing participants are not single race - the progressive caring demonstrators demanding change, are of diverse racial and age groups. They are a kaleidoscope of the world's people - a group not seen in recent times since the 2008-campaign and election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. 

Therefore, if this current enthusiasm and engagement for racial justice and equality should continue into Fall 2020, then I submit that social justice reforms could become real as the US elects a change of administrations in Washington, DC.
