On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a black man, was shot to death by a gang of American police. Yesterday’s shooting in the Kenosha area of Wisconsin, USA, is proof that racial violence against blacks by U.S. police has not ended, even as the “Black lives matter” uprising that spread across the USA and Europe following the death of George Floyd intensifies.
