I want to see more black students in college
In the aftermath of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., such a spontaneous movement against apartheid as the ‘Black Lives Matter’ did not take root in the country and around the world. Which is based on the death of George Floyd. Irrespective of caste and creed, people have descended on the streets. People committed to change. Fear of extremes could not stop them. The administration has been forced to bow its head. Policemen accused of killing Floyd are in jail today. I was overwhelmed to see the united form of man in this turbulent time. I can see the light of a new hope.
I see in various forums that some isolated incidents like violence and looting from the protests are being highlighted more and more in tune with the administration. Critics are forgetting that black people are being subjected to organized violence (active and inactive) every day. Looting, riots are an unwanted part of this huge movement. Any movement has such small problems.
However, police reform alone is not enough to rectify the situation. Under Barack Obama, the Minneapolis Police Department underwent extensive renovations. But that has not changed the image of Minneapolis or elsewhere. So the solution may be to reduce the allocation to the police department. The mayor of Los Angeles has already announced that the money will be spent on minority development by cutting police allocations. Thanks Mayor.
Today, Anthony Fouchi, the head of the US Corona team and an epidemiologist, has made it clear that there is a disparity in health care, and that this inequality has come to the fore because of Corona’s hypertension. Thanks to Mr. Fawcett for his bold statement.
Honorable police, administration, this time it is time to raise your head and breathe. Let’s erase 400 years of repression in this bright light. I would like to see more black students coming to my college in the near future.
However, I could not join the protest procession even though I wanted to. I have taken this decision keeping in mind the mutual distance rules in extreme situations. But from home we can each join the protest in our own way. Whether it’s signing a petition to keep up the pressure on policymakers or providing the funding needed for the movement. We can also be part of the movement by engaging in efforts to raise awareness by discussing neutrality among ourselves. Don’t just sit quietly. Because, the silence of the so-called upper class people like us practically indulges in violence and isolation. So leave the voice, be vocal against the division.
