On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black American man, was killed in Minneapolis, MN during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill. Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd's neck for almost eight minutes While Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down, begging for his life and repeatedly saying "I can't breathe". This incident triggered National protests against police racism, police brutality as well as the lack of police accountability. In this episode of The 411 Live we examine the handling of George Floyd by police, the case and the BLM protests.
Do you think the USA has a social contract with Black Americans since slavery? Do you know “WHY” people burn down their own neighborhoods during an unrest and have you really took the time to figure out how economics play apart in what’s going on today? Join us for Part 2 of “Gen Z & the Era of COVID-19 & Black Lives Matter Protests” as we talk about the Kimberly Jones video and hear the perspective of a group of young men from Gen Z.
2020, a year that no one could’ve predicted. But with times like these, it has called people to rise up and demand there be a change for the better. What was once the generation that many may have called lazy or irresponsible has been the generation that has put themselves on the front line calling for change. We are talking about Generation Z, the age range between twenty-two to twenty-six. In this podcast we talk to a group who fit that description and how they are reacting and handling the challenges of this year. Some shocked, some almost immune to it, but all of them ready to make a change. Listen along as we discuss the protest, Black Lives Matter, and COVID-19.
