Yamiche Alcindor: Chauvin Trial Is About Voting Rights, Whether Black Americans Are Allowed To Survive in America

‘Watching this trial and watching what is happening in Georgia, they absolutely connect’
By Grabien Staff


ALCINDOR: "Well, the Chauvin trial and that murder trial in the death of George Floyd is connected to voting rights because, at the end of the day, it's about how African Americans and whether African Americans are allowed to survive and thrive in America and are able to have access to the principles that America holds up as near and dear. And that, of course, is democracy. But it's also your ability to pursue happiness and to not have an officer kneel on your neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. Watching this trial and watching what's going on in Georgia, they absolutely connect."
