And recently an African American man Jacob Blake was shot multiple times on his back by the police in Kenosha. Although he is alive but is still fighting for his life. But the question here is that is the present government not noticing these racial killings? Are the Republicans playing the blind man’s game?

Recently during the Republican National Convention the issue of racial discrimination did not get much emphasis. According to the Republicans there is no racism issue in the US.

And even of there is a civil unrest going on Trump is not paying much heed to it. Because he is more concerned about winning the elections.

Although he has addressed about the recent anti-racial protests going on all he said that if he is re elected he will assure a healthy living environment for people belonging to any race. Thus making it clear that election is more important to him rather than Black Americans losing their lives in the wake of racial killings.

Will This Ever Stop?

As time is passing by these anti-racial protests are becoming more and more violent. And what is making these people to come out on the streets and demand for justice?
