Racism didn’t cause the riots. The officers who pinned Mr. Floyd George on the ground and murdered him did it because Mr. George was a suspect in a forgery, not because he was a black man. Forgery is not racist.
Detaining or arresting a suspected forger is a criminal issue, not a racial issue. People who hate America choose to frame the event, wrong as it was, as a racist response to a crime… But the suspect was detained because he was identified as a forger, not because he was black. Of course there’s racism, bigotry and hatred because of the color of one’s skin but forgery is not a race issue.. It’s a criminal issue. In the case of Minneapolis it’s an excuse to settle old scores and riot.
