What George Floyd’s death has taught me?


George Floyd’s death was traumatic for many of us in the Black community and we have had enough. Not only did it lead to a global protest against racial inequality & police brutality, it brought forth some constructive thoughts. Here are some themes that stuck out to me:


These three incidents below are regular facets of life as a Black man in the UK.

  1. High chances of a White person calling the police on you unjustifiably.
  2. High chances of being randomly stopped by the police, again…unjustifiably.
  3. High chances of being racially abused, no matter where you are.
