Black Lives Matter We Failed Them Irvine California May 31 2020

The recording and world wide viewing of George Floyd's last moments of life, killed by a ruthless stone hearted Minneapolis Minnesota Police Officer, and George's haunting last words, "I can't breathe" has thrown open the books and shown the world the horrible treatment of people of color in America.  This was not an isolated incident.  Racism did not disappear with the passing of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968, it just went into remission hibernating beneath the surface.  Trump, however, has massaged that sickness into a festering boil which, with the Police murders of unarmed Americans George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, has burst.  The whole world is now watching as fellow Americans are sharing countless stories of Police abuse and killings of countless unarmed people of color all across this country.  Red, Blue, Liberal or Conservative; No state is without this unforgivable sin.  

Following are images from the small peaceful, vocal, enraged demonstration in Irvine California on May 31, 2020.  There are many poignant images from that day but the one that really jumps out at me is the first one; "We Failed Them".
