What have we learned after George Floyd’s killing as a result of another police brutality?   We dissect all the events of the past seven days in an attempt to separate the true facts from the distorted headlines.

The sad reality is that racism and discrimination towards black people are still very present in our country and unless we all work together on eliminating it, it will keep erupting time and again.  How can we take action to grow as a nation and truly make America the great and free country for all of its citizens, regardless of race, religion or any other factor?

Phrases like “I can’t breathe” or “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks” have never had a stronger impact in our society… and for a good reason.

Why peaceful demonstrations are tarnished by a small group or anarchists to turn them into violent riots?  How can we prevent these professional anarchists from robbing peaceful people of their right to gather and demand justice?

Why we need a strong leader to guide the nation during these difficult times rather that send single line tweets that provoke more violence and divide.

Is social media making the problem worse by snowballing each negative headline into a viral and global spread of negativity in our society?

As we come out of the worst pandemic in a hundred years that included severe confinement and shelter-in-place quarantine periods, the highest unemployment numbers in recent history and the deepest setback for a large number of businesses of all sizes, we’re now a nation on the edge.

But we can ALL end racism in America and make it a thing of the past once and for all.  This is a different type of pandemic.  It’s a discrimination pandemic for which we haven’t found a cure in more than 400  years.  And if the killing of George Floyd triggers this change, this cure for humanity, that would be his greatest legacy.
