#BlackLivesMatter, why is it so important and powerful?

December 5th, we celebrate Sinterklaas and you can still read Why Black Pete is Racist. To celebrate, I want to talk about why #BlackLivesMatter is important. On May 25th earlier this year, George Floyd died at the hands of police in Minneapolis. He allegedly past a counterfit 20$ bill which resulted in him being arrested. However, the police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost 9 minutes and during the last 3 minutes, George’s body didn’t move and he had no pulse. The brave 17-year old Darnella Frazier filmed this whole ordeal and made sure the rest of the world saw it too. The death of George Floyd sparked a world wide movement against racism and police brutality. However, why is this so significant?, we have a lot to unpack here, so let’s get uncomfortable.
