George Floyd died in police brutality in Minneapolis on May 25. His death triggered widespread protests, some violent and many peaceful, across every city in America. Such has been the public outrage in US that tens of thousands of people continued with their demonstrations throughout last week, as the Floyd case reignited deep seated anger over police killings of black Americans and racism. Demonstrators took to the streets not only to express their outrage at the treatment of Floyd but to condemn police brutality against black Americans more widely. What began as a local protest in Minneapolis soon became a national indignation and cut through global consciousness in a way not seen since the police attack on Rodney King in 1991. The Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrations have taken place in public squares from Paris to London to Amsterdam to Sydney to Auckland. The worldwide protests against the visceral horror of Floyd s slow public execution under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer and frequent cases of police brutality and fatal use of force by law enforcement officers against African Americans shows that racism and police brutality are not specific only to US but is a global phenomenon by its very nature. It is not uncommon to see similar dynamics in Brazil, or Australia, or Britain, or even India in its different manifestation. More generally and at a larger level, the violence and protests that followed Floyd s killing have called for an end to deep rooted racism and discrimination against Blacks in the US, which is said to be worse than in Europe. It is also said that in the US, Black deaths are not a flaw in the system. They are the system. For many the outrage over Floyd s death reflects years of frustration over socio economic inequality and discrimination.
