George Floyd: America’s Secret Love for Police Brutality

The United States of America is known as one nation under God; home of the brave; land of the free; and the most powerful nation on earth, but it does not include Americans of African descent because it was their genocide through free labor for over 400 years that made the descendants of other races in America united, brave, free, and powerful.
In 2020, it is respectable to stand up for a women publicly even in their absence because we all have mothers, sisters, and daughters; stand up for immigrants because many of us are one or two generations away from our immigrant parents or are married to one; stand up for LGBTQ because you cannot identify many of them and you could lose your income; but it is almost useless to stand up for blacks in America because they can easily be identified from a distance, excluded from love and marriage, known to have little access to resources, and have old state as well as city laws written against their rights.
Intentionally ignoring blacks in America by purposefully electing members of congress that failed to pass an anti-lynching bill for over 200 attempts in 100 years to make lynching a federal crime or having grand juries to find killers of blacks not-guilty is to intimidate blacks from having access to the same resources that generates others’ ethnic capital. Blacks make up about 13% of the population, but about 38% of the prison population because America wants to make sure that they cannot vote for progressive leaders; get federal school loans to get college degrees; get business loans to become entrepreneurs; get high paying jobs to organize and buy adequate legal representation; and reduce their marriage rates to ensure that fatherless children are railroaded to the delinquency or correctional centers as a cultural cycle.
The true power of being brave for both freedom and unity is the ability to speak up for the disenfranchised and the legally oppressed when they are both absent or legally excluded. All of America must demand the immediate arrest as well as suspension of salary for the killing of an unarmed person and a drug test for the killer within an hour of the incident regardless of status or profession by federal agencies. The grand jury should be disbanded and family of the deceased should have their personal legal representation to argue their case. If found guilty, police officers should give their pension and retirement to the family of the deceased. America should understand that it is wrong and immoral to intentionally terrorize and deny a people access to resources for centuries in order to relegate them and their descendants to merely generating others’ wealth in exchange for sustenance.
