The June 5 story “‘Get your knee off our necks’: George Floyd mourned in Minneapolis” does a great job in giving a fair and accurate perspective to the protests in the United States. We have all witnessed the gruesome murder of George Floyd on the TV. Floyd’s last words will be forever ingrained in the memories of all Americans. The protests show the power of American democracy and the will of the American people. The pandemic did not stop Americans from protesting the most horrible killing of an unarmed citizen.

What is ironical and disturbing is that the Western media has been silent about the 100,000-plus Americans (dis-proportionally African Americans) who were unable to breathe under the COVID-19 pandemic. It is indisputable that while China was preventing domestic travel, it allowed international travel from Wuhan. China was also stocking up PPEs to sell them for profit. More than half a million have lost their lives due to the Chinese cover-up and greed. Unfortunately, such discussions in Western media are immediately branded as racist!

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
