Summary Translation: Career Engine - African American George Floyd’s death has led to a series of protests in the United States. Recently, this movement has made its way to Canada. In the video footage, the viewers can clearly hear Floyd crying: “I can’t breathe, please.” Unfortunately, the cop was not moved by his plea and Floyd passed away as a result. The image of a black man being knelt to death by a white cop was too symbolic, it has angered the black community. What should Chinese people do? There are currently two types of trending calls to action. One calls for Chinese people to step up and support the Black community and say no to racial discrimination. Racial discrimination will only be eliminated when all discriminated races come together to fight. Another voice suggests that the Chinese are in a lower class than the Blacks in North America. If the Chinese stands up for the blacks, then who would stand up for the Chinese? This year is the American election, who knows if these protests are organized as a trap? When there is news about the Chinese being discriminated against, the community is always very fragmented. There are two reactions, the Chinese people either speak up immediately or pretend they don’t know anything. The author says if Chinese people value their Canadian identity, then they should value peace in the community and say no to racial discrimination.
