Is the Black Lives Matter Movement Set to Change America’s Social Fabric?

A Black man lying face down by the side of the road…
His hands restrained behind his back…
A White police officer seen crouching; a knee pressed to the man’s neck…
He lay in distress, pleading for breath while passersby implored the police officer to let him go.
“I can’t breathe,” he said before falling silent.
All pleas fell to deaf ears.
Yet another life snuffed out in a matter of 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
This is the story of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American killed brutally in police custody on the streets of Minneapolis on May 25, 2020. It will soon be a month since the fateful day but the image still rings in the mind. Floyd’s death sparked worldwide protests, with people demanding accountability for similar cases of police brutality in the past. It has also compelled people around the world to reexamine the social structure and the history of racism in their own countries.
