In the last week, the media has called your attention to the murders of #BreonnaTaylor (EMT and a nursing student) killed in her home, #AhmaudArbery who was gunned down running in his neighborhood and just a few days ago #GeorgeFloyd a peace activist was suffocated with the knee of a police officer in custody. Even CNN show a black reporter #OmarJiminez being arrested on live TV during his coverage of the Minneapolis riots.
