In US news and current events today, Black Lives Matter protesters are speaking out on why they chose to risk their health amid the COVID-19 pandemic in order to fight for justice and equality.
After the police killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and countless other Black people in America, the resulting George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality, police racism, and police violence have put systemic racism in the spotlight as BLM protesters take to the streets in support of police reform, racial justice and civil rights. Unfortunately, this global uprising also took place amid the deadly Coronavirus pandemic. With the world rocked by COVID, protesting became a choice between risking one's health and fighting for justice. The COVID19 pandemic laid bare the truth of America's inequality, as Black communities and communities of color were hit hardest by Coronavirus. Now, as protesters take to the streets in now iconic masks, we look inside the minds of several protesters in order to understand how they weighed the risks of getting sick vs. fighting for justice.
