I took no pleasure in watching Chauvin being handcuffed and marched out of that courtroom. I am sad for him and his family. The culture of racism has always been how we roll here, and the real crime is not teaching our children that all humans deserve respect and fair treatment.

However I was raised in a home where the N WORD was never uttered. Yet I Have watched my sister become a staunch conservative and make excuses for the violence that has been delivered to people of color. She has lived in the South most of her adult life and I Believe she has been influenced by the rampant racism in those states. That and her allegiance to FOX News.
