Derek Chauvin’s verdict – Accountability, not Justice

On April 20th, Derek Chauvin, the man who murdered George Floyd almost one year ago was finally convicted as guilty on three counts, second-degree murder, third degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. While many people are calling this verdict justice, with Nancy Pelosi going as far as to say that George Floyd “sacrificed himself for justice”, which is problematic to say the least, we need to remember that this verdict is accountability. This verdict has held accountable the institution of policing and made visible its constant use of excessive force and…

Everything Wrong With Our Anti-Racism Minister Being White
