George Floyd| 21 second pause of Justin Trudeau; Stop Pretending That Racism Is Patriotism:
Presently the world is again facing a social matter of racism (after the murder of George Floyd), many people stand out against racism and different protests are occurring worldwide to raise the voice: “black life matters”. But on the other hand, some prominent political leaders are painting it is good for the safety and development of their state.
George Perry Floyd Jr. was an African-American man who was killed brutally by American police during an arrest in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020. His death was completely painful murder by Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, as he knelt on his neck and back for eight minutes and 46 seconds leading to his death. In the reaction of George Floyd murder, and more broadly to police violence against other black people, protest quickly spread across the United States and internationally.
Donald Trump’s Remark On His Death:
Donald trump president of America, speaking in the White House Rose Garden on Friday said:
“Equal justice according to the law means that every American will receive equal treatment for taking law in your hands without any discrimination of race, color, gender or creed We all witnessed what accident happened last week. We can’t let it happen again. Hopefully, George is looking down and appreciating this is a great thing that’s happening for my country. A great day for George Floyd. It’s a great day for every American. This is a great day in terms of equality and justice.”
Being crystalclear at Trump’s point of view: George Floyd, is looking down from heaven, seeing the number of jobs, and appreciating, “There are great things that are happening for our country.” Yes! It’s beyond belief. Here this quote sets well: stop pretending that racism is patriotism.
The president’s critics said he was brutally suggesting Late Floyd would be celebrating positive jobs figures.
Mr. Trump’s defenders said: he was mentioning equal treatment of all Americans by police.
Justin Trudeau’s opinion against racism:
Prime minister Justin Trudeau clears in his speech that he is against racism and he owned that racism exists in Canada and we have to stand against it and we have to take steps to remove it. He took part in the protest that occurred in Canada and took a knee at solidarity. And he also speaks about racism in Canada:
“Anti-black racism is real. Unconscious bias is real. Systemic discrimination is real. And they happen here, in Canada”
His comments in the favor of protests against anti-black racism that took place in cities across Canada over the weekend. Protests took place in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal to support the protest of anti-black racism in the United States, as well as to protest police-involved deaths here in Canada.
Speaking to young black Canadians on Monday.
“I know that once you called me anxious and angry. When you say that this brings back painful experiences of racism that you’ve faced. I would like to you to inform you that I‘m listening, and also that your government stand’s with you. Together, we will take meaningful action against racism and discrimination in every form. The status quo – where people face violence because of the color of their skin – is unacceptable”.
21 Second Pause of Justin Trudeau on Donald’s Trump Response:
Justin Trudeau paused for 21 seconds when asked about Donald’s trump response to the protest in U.S. Defender of Trudeau’s claimed that: Whatever he will say will end up as a soundbite. He made sure he had not compromised the situation with George Floyd. At the same time, he didn’t want to mention something that would bring Trump against him.
He didn’t want to lie and don’t want to pretend that racism doesn’t exist in Canada. At the same time, he saved himself from a comparison situation. That’s why he took so long to respond. He is aware that elections are coming soon in the US. He may very well be working with Trump for a while. The reporter was trying to bait him into hit the US and Trump, but Trudeau didn’t take the bait. He made an awkward silence to construct a well-thought answer. To avoid emotional response.
Protest; Black Life Matters, Occurred Globally:
After George Floyd’s death, against the use of excessive force by police officers and lack of police accountability demonstration and protest were held globally. Accounts of looting, violence, attempt to throw tears gas on the participants, and aggressive police activity occurred at many of these protests. Protests gathered in over 400 cities throughout all 50 American states and internationally.
President Trump took shelter in the fortified bunker under the White House when protests occurred in Lafayette Park last month, Trump claimed that he went down for an “inspection” for the little time, but Attorney General Bill Barr stated that Trump went for his safety.
Memorial Service of George Floyd:
GeorgeFloyd Memorial service occurred in Texas, his home town. Filled with tears and raised fits and calls for change. To pay their respect to George Floyd in his final public memorial, mourners waited in a socially distant line outside of the Fountain of Praise Church in Floyd’s hometown of Houston.
