The BLM Protest

The black lives matter protest started in July 2013 in a city near St. Louis and in New York City, George Zimmerman was on the charge of second-degree murder stemming from the shooting of Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012. In July 2013, the movement began with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media after the acquittal of George Zimmerman on that day and forward people blame the government for the death of Trayvon martin so people started to go against the government by destroying government properties and attacking officers and this is the beginning of the BLM (Black Lives Matter) protest all through 2013 to 2020 the protest has gotten more worse as time goes but in 2020 the protest has gotten worse since a new unknown virus is out on the world and people are still protesting but 2020 it’s called the George Floyd protest because a 46-year-old African-American who was named George Floyd who was killed during an arrest after Derek Chauvin, a Minneapolis Police Department officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes as three other officers looked on which led to Floyd’s death which was later arrested. People started to use the hashtag #BLM again then later on the protest started to block the highway and people started to attack officers and even other people but there is another group who fight back against the black lives matter protest. It’s called the white lives matter (WLM) it’s a group of racists who think white is better than black so sometimes you can see both groups fight each other. But sadly both groups are helping no one because it was already worse that there is an unknown virus in the world and now their people destroying and hurting each other without thinking who there hurting because some officers even have family and even kids and it worse because if the people keep doing the protest then they will get the unknown virus then spread it more so it is not okay to be doing this protests right now and hurting other people while doing this.
