Why did the death of the African American cause such a riot, and what are the reasons behind it?
On May 25, 2020, The black man who was "kneeled to death" by the policeman, named George Floyd, was 43 years old. He was the security guard of a restaurant. The restaurant owner described him as "polite and gentle. Treat others with courtesy," his family called him a "gentle giant." At the time of the incident, he was only suspected by a grocery store employee to “try to use a fake $20 bill”.
The United States itself is an immigrant country, and everyone comes from all corners of the world. There are African Americans, Latin Americans etc. Although the United States claims to be a society ruled by law, in real life, it wears colored glasses to treat blacks.
According to the "American Race 2019" report released by the Pew Research Center in the United States; nearly six adults believe that "the racial relations in the United States are very bad"; about two-thirds of the interviewees said black people were discriminated against when dealing with law enforcement and judicial authorities ; More than half of African-American respondents believe that "the United States cannot achieve racial equality."
In February 2020, when a black guy in Georgia, USA, went out for a run, he was shot and killed by a white father and son as "escape thieves", and local prosecutors considered them to be "self-defense".
In Minneapolis, there have also been many violent incidents of robbery, smashing shops, and burning buildings. The report said that one person was shot dead during the violence. According to the investigation results given by the police, the protester was shot by a shop owner during the protest and died directly. The police also revealed that the protests in other areas were relatively peaceful.
The protests in New York City are dangerous. Everyone knows that New York is the epicenter of the epidemic in the United States. At present, the protesters disregard the blockade ban, gather together and clashed with the police.
Since Trump took office, it has not been a day or two since he has spoken out. As a white man, and then as a tycoon with more than 100 million assets, he even advocates white priority. This has to some extent encouraged the arrogance of white people. It was not caused by this black man being "kneeled down" by the white policeman. This was just a fuse, which ignited the fireworks, which caused such a great anger. In fact, people have endured for a long time, and this racial discrimination It’s not two days a day, plus the epidemic situation during this period, people of different races are treated differently, and people’s living habits are also not saving money, so that people have no income and cannot live normally during the epidemic. Obviously The U.S. government represented by Trump did not pay attention to the practical difficulties of the people, and the emotions that people had accumulated for a long time erupted.
I hope this riot will end as soon as possible.Everyone in the United States, please pay attention to the safety of life and property and protect yourself and your family!
