Black lives matter is a movement that is established to protect the rights of the black community in the U.S, UK, Canada, and Australia. This movement took shape in 2013 when Trayvon Martin was killed by police and when a serious encounter took place to resolve the case of the death of African Americans.
Why This Campaign?
The basic purpose of this campaign is to eliminate the white power and protect the black neighborhoods by providing them power against the savagery imposed. This movement got progressive support on social media. This movement covers several chapters of minorities and political independence.
Thousands of people support this movement who want peace and fight against racism to protect the rights of others and want to save the lives of minorities. The black lives matter raised the issue in favor of thousands of people who were killed by police against the racism differences.
Various laws are constituted because of this movement. But several people do not agree with the effort of black lives matter. The agenda of this strategy is to fight against the national criminal justice system.
Facebook and other social media platforms are responsible for the success of this motive, which raised the different cases of deaths under the racism act.
This strategy had increased his profile when the street protest and different other campaigns followed it. Here some black people are mentioned who are killed by police.
- Trayvon Martin, who was a seventeen years old African American killed by police on 26th February 2012.
- Micheal Brown, who was eighteen years old black communist, was shot by a white proudly police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson city.

Who was George Floyd?
George Floyd is a 46 years old black gentleman; born in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He spent most of his time in Houston, Texas, where he spent most of his time. His height was six feet seven inches, and a player of football and basketball. He had two daughters and one son.
13 Years ago, Floyd conducted a burglary by using dangerous weapons according to the Harris County reports, and he bears five years of a sentence for this robbery. After that, he went to his hometown, where he took a new start of his life in Minneapolis and became a truck driver to earn an honest livelihood.
The white police of America are playing racist discrimination with the black community. George Floyd was killed by American police on 25th May 2020 at Minneapolis. George was arrested on suspicion that he was using a bogus bill. American police officer knelt for almost nine minutes when he was saying I can’t breathe.
Shooting by US Police
The selfish police officer continued this act until he died. His hands were under cuffed, and he was laying on the road. George did not want to die because he was saying I can’t breathe. In the last three minutes of his life, he can’t move, and his pulses also stopped. Before his death, he pleaded for his life.
There were four officers presenting this hardcore incident, and they were not bearing the interruption of eyewitnesses. All sightseers also requested these officers to let him go.
Chauvin did not put his knees aside when the medical techniques were trying to save his life. George’s death video was circulating on safety cameras and by the eyewitnesses, and the murder of George declared a suicide case. After this incident, these four harshness’s officers were dismissed, and felonious criminal offenses charged against them.
Chauvin got second degree charged on conducting the third-degree murder, and additional officers also faced second-degree murder by proving the aid to the killer. The FBI and Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are reviewing this conflict. After the death of George Floyd, a huge violation arose from the public: all NGOs and movements that are responsible for protecting the rights of minorities are all activated.
The objection from the people spread all over the country. All violated people were displaying fury against the racist behavior of the police and appealing the police to stop his savageness. The clash between the police and the public has to be seen in several cities, including Minneapolis, Atlanta, and Louisville.
Various buildings, vehicles were destroyed by fire, and several looted cases were also reported. Curfew has to be enforced in dozens of cities; people have to use different ways to reach their homes. Tear gas, hand grenades, and rubber bullets were used by the police to defeat the violence.
Almost 17,000 soldiers are sent to these violated cities to maintain civilian disturbance. There is race and racism discrimination founded on the American police. Prejudice against other communities has become a systematic feature of Americans.
In Brisbane, 10,000 people joined together by presenting the black lives matter movement; this is the friendly rally, which is showing humanity through their placards.
Various laws implemented in America are to protect the rights of white, but there should be equal rights for the minorities. When the minorities conduct the crime, the American police show zero tolerance for them. Media outlets also playing negative role in race discrimination; all crimes were imposed on minorities. This negative behavior of white for black peoples and minorities is prevailing civil unrest in the U.S.A.
