And of course you can follow your girl at http://www.instagram.com/basiapowellWe discussed the Derek Chauvin’s trial for the murder of George Floyd, as well as how you identify a racist vs an ally, and lots more.

Less than a year ago, I wrote an article entitled, “The vaccine for racism.” https://basiapowell.com/2020/05/31/the-vacine-for-racism/

Here is an excerpt from that article,

America continues to be afflicted by a pandemic far worst than Caronavirus, and that is racism. We can no longer ignore this plague. It is too deadly. While the health experts are frantically searching for a vaccine for Covid 19, we would like our world leaders to also expedite the search for a vaccine for racism.

Racism Is A Pandemic

Racism is a pandemic. Police brutality against African Americans is a crime. Being black apparently is an incurable virus. All black men are at major risk. They are guilty on sight. Very few are afforded the opportunity to have a fair trial. What are we all going to do about this?

It is time for us all to stand up and take non-violent action against the hate and bigotry, particularly in America. Racism is everybody’s problem. Why do we need to be assigned a race? We are all members of the human race.

Today, nothing has changed. In fact, it may have gotten worse. While Derek Chauvin is on trial for murdering an unarmed black man, George Floyd, a young man by the name of Daunte Wright is murdered yet again in the city of Minnesota, by a white police officer, who mistakenly shoots him with her gun instead of her taser, (allegedly).  

This same week a video surfaced with police officers arresting a black army Lieutenant, Caron Nazario, who was tased and assaulted during a routine traffic stop, in uniform. Should we also mention the black man mistakenly arrested and beaten outside his Hollywood home, after a woman called police on her white boyfriend in a domestic violence matter. The person they were called for was a white man. However, the police assaulted the first black man they found at the seen of the crime.

For those of you, who still want to deny that racial profiling is real or still exists in the United States of America, I have just provided you with recent evidence of racial injustice and profiling. Racism is everybody’s business.

Take a look at what my ladies had to say in this week’s episode with me and the ladies:
