Black lives are important
Black lives are important
And also the lives of all other races. The problem facing American society appears to be that those who are in a position to make laws for the benefit of all are unwilling to change. The root cause of this is that they do not want to be responsible for their decisions.
Is there an organization in the United States where a complaint can be made against the police or any other government department?
A government department should not be a law in itself; I suspect that the unwillingness to be responsible for their decisions is behind everything.
There should be an independent body that handles complaints and should not be held accountable for its actions.
Politicians say all the right things, but they need to follow through with some kind of action.
President Trump has been widely criticized for his handling of the “Black Lives Matters” protest, but this problem has been going on for decades. Joe Biden has been in politics for a long time and has done nothing to address the problem of racism and the plight of those who are disadvantaged in society. He was part of the Barack Obama administration during the time of the race riots that occurred when Obama was president.
Protest organizers must compile a list of things they want to happen and present it to the president; maybe use it as part of a petition.
“Justice for George Floyd” has often been said during the protests, which basically mean taking revenge on the officers responsible for his death; I’m not sure if that’s what Floyd would have wanted. That alone will not change the plight of blacks. What they do, however, is an acknowledgment from the president that they have not been treated fairly.
What the president and state governors must do is tell the people, “This is what we are going to do to change the plight of the underprivileged,” but I will not hold my breath due to years of inaction and empty talk of one. government after another. The governments of other countries must pressure the United States to change and say, “This is not right.”
During the apartheid years in South Africa, governments around the world pressured their athletes not to participate in sporting events in which South Africans participated. It is an example of how the world can unite in a common cause.
It takes a leader to take the bar in the same way that Jacinda Ardern led the campaign for social media companies like Facebook and Twitter to take more responsibility for their content after the Christchurch mosque shootings.
But this is simply not happening, instead the protests have turned into a shouting match rather than meaningful dialogue. Protesters must tell the government of their respective countries what they would like to see happen and politicians must listen because they were voted to serve us citizens.
