Great good can sometimes come out of the worst tragedies. We can’t bring George Floyd back. We can’t undo what killed Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. But we can make sure they didn’t die in vain.
We can make sure whatever killed them doesn’t kill again. Because what killed Floyd, Taylor, Arbery, and what continues to threaten millions of African Americans is not the single act of an angry cop. It’s racism.
