George Floyd’s death in May last year shook the inland region as well as the country and the world. Now, justice depends on balance, so keep in mind that if Derek Chauvin, an officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck, is convicted, it will be the lifelong justice of George Floyd for the rest of his life. is needed. It is not a pardon of a system that thrives with unreasonable fear as a justification for police violence against black men and women.
Over the last two weeks, we have seen, heard, and consumed daily summaries. Alternatively, in some cases, he deliberately ignored the procedure for the Derek Chauvin murder trial.
Most people, especially colored races, whether we are in tune or in tune, foresee the uncertain consequences of the trial and inevitably train themselves in what happens as a result. However, I’m worried … I’m ticking the time. In fact, it doesn’t matter if Chauvin is guilty or exonerated. Almost all previous trial advances of this kind have ultimately taught us as blacks. Regardless of the result, there is no big change.
Chauvin’s defense team’s tactics are not new and have been successful in the past. Remind again of the usual accusations of the “victim” defense as to why George Floyd’s death was his own fault. Attorneys argue that if we only review the evidence from their point of view and accept their manipulated facts, we will see their way of suicide by Floyd in essence. After all, lawyers claim that Floyd didn’t initially work with police because of cardiac hypertrophy, high blood pressure, drug addiction, etosetra, and more. Obviously, the lawyer says Floyd was involved in his own death, not to mention.
Chauvin’s lawyer argues that he continues to reason in his client’s defense: Floyd takes up space as his blackness, his masculinity, a living, breathing human being. It’s a good idea to somehow stop claiming what you’re doing and speak in plain language. It hurt the sensibility of this white officer who controls Floyd’s life and death-it was Floyd’s fault, not the action of the officer who led to his death. In essence, Shovin’s actions, whether intentional or unconscious, by his whites, under the circumstances of acting within the authority of his white privileges, by his white supremacist history and heritage. It showed the privileges left to him.
I argue that Shovin’s potential conviction serves as a figurative blood sacrifice in response to the recent national “publicized” black death and national uprising by police. I hate the textualization used by some black commentators and others, which sparked. I think this is misleading. It provides a convenient escape clause for those who feel that Chauvin should never have to go to trial, and Chauvin’s potential convictions in the history of police atrocities and the death of blacks in their hands. Provides a release valve to others who may mistakenly think of it as a pardon.
The concept of blood sacrifice is rooted in Babylonian, Canaanite, and ancient nomadic rituals and was once practiced in many cultures. The victims, humans and animals, were considered pure tributes to higher powers.
Given the long history of suspicious behavior against Chauvin’s suspect (18 formal complaints against him in the military for 19 years), it is unlikely to deserve the symbolic expression of sacrifice today.
Don’t be fooled by the media. Chauvin is neither a victim of this scenario nor can he be a victim, so it cannot be considered a victim of blood or any other type. It is a convenient bait-and-switch.
The true blood sacrifice of this story
Floyd was a real blood sacrifice in this scenario, and another black man was placed on the altar of American consciousness. Consciousness has already been dripping red in the blood of others for centuries.
In addition, the blood sacrifice ritual states that the donor is equated with sacrifice. The United States, represented by Minnesota, where Floyd was murdered, cannot make any sacrifices in connection with George Floyd’s death. Because it has never been identified with a black citizen, evaluated for life, or shown compassion. It offers long deferred concessions only if there is no other way to move forward. In this sense, Chauvin’s belief may be an American concession, but he is not a sacrifice.
He could force a concession in response to the 2020 national uprising for institutional and systematic change, but the United States remains the mechanization of the corporate dollar, political chronism, and the country’s strong power. It seems that they are involved in the only union that the union is willing to tolerate. Representative of modern paddy rollers — a union of sheriffs and police.
In theory, blood sacrifice is a form of atonement, and Americans are bold by changing institutional norms to atone for previous mistakes against blacks and drawing meaningful paths to reimbursement and reconciliation. It seems they don’t want to take action-the Byden administration has taken some meaningful steps on this, but the direction — it’s a path that the entire United States has yet to find the courage to travel.
Chauvin’s belief doesn’t mean …
Shovin’s conviction, even if it does happen, is the brutal and unjust murder of more than 400 years, and the economics, education, criminal justice, politics, housing, and the suffering of black Americans and others. We cannot atone for inequality in health and wealth. color. It is not considered a down payment.
People of all races engaged in this modern struggle for equality and justice are distracted by convictions and such as a means of making George Floyd’s horrific death more tolerable. You will not be paralyzed in accepting a conviction. This is because even after Floyd’s death, blacks and browns inland and across the country continue to die under suspicious and unreasonable circumstances by local police.
Blood sacrifices evoke a desire to tackle life’s problems. And life in the United States is difficult and unfair to the dark, due to the systematic and institutional issues that underpin the country’s economic viability.
Chauvin is on trial for murder — period. Do not twist. He is no longer a blood sacrifice!
Of course, this is my opinion. I keep it a reality.
