Following the murder of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who died at the hands of police officers in May, a wave of protests has begun around the world. The focus of these protests is to end police brutality and support Black Lives Matter (BLM). It is important to end racism once and for all in our country. Deaths like these are unacceptable and should not go without punishment. It goes without saying that these protests have been controversial for many reasons — All Lives Matter vs. BLM, looting and violent protests. Calls to reform policing and address racially charged issues like Confederate statues are filling the news.
