Can we just end this assumption that racism was the cause of George Floyd's death? Like Eric Garner, he was killed by a choke hold used to subdue him. Like with Eric Garner, we are focused on race instead of ending this specific practice. The Minneapolis Police Department has recorded that they have used a choke hold to subdue people 247 times since 2015, with 44 of those times resulting in the person being restrained becoming unconscious.
So long as we are talking about race, we are not focusing on ending the use of choke holds by police. I am afraid that all the marching and rioting, we will still not have ended the use of them when this is over.
