The killing of George Floyd by a white police officer is just the latest version of a story heard way too often in America. Eric Gardner, Breonna Taylor and Aumaud Arbery are just a few of the Black lives that have been cut short due to the entrenched, systemic racism persistent in American culture. On the next Line One, Prentiss Pemberton discusses race and social justice.
