Black Lives Matter - Black Pride and Dignity, Too!
By Dr. Belay Begashaw
George Floyd's case is just one out of millions that take place literally every single day in our unjust world.The level of agony and pain of this assault are also not very different – the only difference in this case – thanks to the technology and social media – is that the story could not be hidden and left in the dark.
Police brutality and gross mistreatment across the justice system, discrimination across public services, unwelcoming gestures (micro aggressions) in the school hallways and so on, are just some of the daily phenomena that black people face all around the world. This case is representative of all of the black men and women who die at the hands of the police for doing mundane activities – walking dogs, jogging, a broken tail light, and watching TV in one’s own home
