The murder of Black people, usually by White police officers and citizens alike have become commonplace in the United States. The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the United States. It has infected over two million, and killed over one hundred, twenty thousand souls, due in part to the federal government's anemic preperation and response. Millions of people worldwide are out of work due to the pandemic. Many protests and counter-protests are occurring all over the United States and other parts of the world. The murder of a Black man named George Floyd by a White police officer in the United States has lit a fire of protests all over the world. Many, even some in the business and commercial industry have started to realize Black Lives Matter!
