Today, the city of my birth is very tense. Protests surround the court house, according to my family member who drove through downtown earlier. Today the court case against Derek Chauvin begins, the officer who knelt on the neck of George Floyd until he was dead. Each day of the trial will be inflammatory. Will social justice prevail? I am in anguish, not knowing how long the case will be debated and what will be decided. Will the officer be charged with murder? What if he is not? When will racial justice begin?
