The Streets Will Be on Fire if Derek Chauvin Isn’t Convicted for the Murder of George Floyd

America is bracing for a verdict in former Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial over the execution of George Floyd.

Closing arguments in Chauvin’s trial will take place Monday, after which the jury will begin its deliberations. Chauvin, was a Minneapolis police officer when he was filmed nonchalantly kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. With his sunglasses jauntily perched on his head, and his hand in his pocket while he slowly and deliberately snuffed the life out of Floyd, he is the poster boy for the police genocide of people of color.

The Floyd execution video is the most infamous snuff film in history, and if Chauvin is found guilty of the most serious charge that he faces, second-degree unintentional murder, media outlets should never again play that sickening video.

The graphic video, played endlessly on cable news outlets, opened the eyes of many white Americans to the reality of the violence and brutality that people of color face every day at the hands of the police. A traffic stop for a white person is a minor annoyance in the great scheme of things, but for a black man it’s a terrifying ordeal that all too often leads to an arrest at the least, and injury or death at the worst.

The trial of Chauvin for the murder of Floyd should be a slam dunk, and I don’t see why the jury would need more than a few minutes to find the killer cop guilty of murdering Floyd.

If Chauvin is found not guilty or if the trial ends in a hung jury, it will be undeniable proof that the judicial system is stacked against minorities, and I wouldn’t be surprised if riots erupt all over this racist country. I can only hope that the violence isn’t indiscriminate and that an outraged citizenry will focus their wrath on the homes of racist Republican politicians and the white evangelical churches that supported the racist agenda of Donald Trump.

I am not advocating violence; I’m just being a realist by declaring that America will burn if a miscarriage of justice takes place and the killer cop isn’t convicted.

Outrage Over George Floyd’s Murder Will Bring Down Donald Trump

Donald Trump is a demented and doddering old racist, but I give him credit for skillfully exploiting America’s racial divide, emboldening white supremacists and Nazis with his dog whistles and thrilling his white evangelical supporters with his undisguised vitriol.

White evangelicals are full of piss and vinegar and it’s not the wise and comforting words of Jesus in the Gospels that they seek, but the vulgar and hateful words of their false messiah, Trump, that makes them cream their pants.

Trump skillfully surfed the waves of racial discord, even the killer wave of Charlottesville failed to knock him off balance. He emerged from that hateful moment in American history with support from his base not only intact but strengthened.

But the callous and cold-blooded murder of an unarmed African American, George Floyd, by four police officers changed everything. The murder recorded on a teen’s cellphone has been seen by millions, if not billions, worldwide, and every day since his brutal murder hundreds of thousands have been protesting and demanding justice for George Floyd and an end to police brutality and racism.

Americans are sick and tired of police brutality and we are sick and tired of Trump’s racist rhetoric and policy. Enough is enough and we demand an end to systemic police racism and Trump’s racist administration.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Has Choice Words for Racist Trump

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot didn’t mince word when she spelled out what she wants to say to President Donald Trump:

“It starts with “F” and end with “U.”

The mayor is a black feminist lesbian, and she recognizes the racist, misogynist and homophobic Trump as her implacable enemy.

I’m a liberal, Hispanic senior citizen, and I likewise recognize Trump as a bigot who doesn’t give a crap about someone like me.

If a reporter asked me the same question that was posed to Mayor Lightfoot, I would answer in similar fashion:

“Fuck Donald Trump!”

Lightfoot’s unambiguous message to the stable genius came the morning after he threatened to send the military to Minneapolis to shoot protesters demonstrating this week after George Floyd was murdered in broad daylight by a police officer while he was being detained. It came after the racist-in-chief called protesters “THUGS” in a tweet. It came after he tweeted the racist mantra, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

In his careers as a real estate developer, reality TV star and president, he has exposed himself as a blatant racist, and no intelligent person should waste any words on Trump.

All I have to say to Donald Trump is “Fuck You”, and if you don’t understand my state of mind, fuck you as well.
