Cities are being set ablaze across the country. The murder of George Floyd at the hands of Derek Chauvin and the Minneapolis police department was a flash point that set off a chain of events. However, this has been brewing for years. The incessant melt up of financial markets that has benefited the investor class at the expense of everyday working Americans. The tens and trillions in bailouts to Wall Street and the investor class. Police misconduct, traffic tickets to raise money for municipalities, mass incarceration for drugs have led to a police state. Now America is at war with itself:
Protests over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Derek Chauvin and three other Minneapolis policemen continued Sunday around the country. Riots broke out in Seattle, Chicago, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlanta and several other major cities. Protesters in Philadelphia hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police, officials said, while thieves in more than 20 California cities smashed their way into businesses and ran off with as much as they could carry — boxes of sneakers, armloads of clothes, and cellphones, TVs and other electronics.
Millions of Americans are mad at President Trump because certain of the uprisings happened on his watch. Trump has also called in the national guard to quell the uprisings and the looting. It all begs the question, “Can America check Trump if it didn’t check Obama?” Trump And The Global Economy (“Trump And The GE”) in 2018 featured Shock Exchange, Senator Maria Chappelle Nadal and Professor Brofman. On the above video Shock Exchange raised the issue of America not checking Obama. Tell us what you all think.
