After his long night of prayer for "the right verdict" to be pronounced—Derek Chauvin was convicted on all three counts—Joe Biden stepped before the White House cameras to tell us what it all meant. George Floyd's death, said Biden, "was a murder in the full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism... that is a stain on our nation's soul—the knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans." Astonishing. Biden is saying that when Chauvin knelt on the neck of George Floyd for nine minutes as the life drained out of him, the world, for once, was getting a good, close look at the diseased soul of America. What Chauvin was doing to Floyd, said the president of the United States, is a reflection of the kind of justice America delivers to Black Americans. This is no aberration, Biden was saying. This is the routine reality. Biden was introduced by Kamala Harris, who said much the same: "America has a long history of systemic racism. Black Americans and Black men in particular have been treated throughout the course of our history as less than human." https://vdare.com/articles/patrick-j-buchanan-is-america-led-today-by-anti-americans

Here’s a graph showing cumulative gun homicide deaths from the Gun Violence Archive created for The Trace for 2020 vs. 2016–19. As you can see, 2020 murders were running along the high side of 2016–2019 deaths until late May. But after George Floyd’s death on Memorial Day, 2020’s murders radically diverge from the baseline rate. The excess murders in 2020 from Memorial Day 2020 onward are comparable to all the lynchings in American history. https://vdare.com/posts/how-much-blood-does-black-lives-matter-have-on-its-hands
