Geography Helped Kill George Floyd
race, segregation, dehumanization, policing, George Floyd, Derek Chauvin
Oh discusses the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin and argues that "the trial should be seen not just as the trial of a rogue police officer but as a trial of policing in the context of systemic racial segregation and racial dehumanization." He draws parallels between George Floyd's killing and that of Tamir Rice in Cleveland, arguing that both killings are connected by the evil of racial segregation.
