The hate pandemic - Portuguese
PRINT - Correio da Manha - Toronto, 02/06/2020 - EDITORIAL, p. 2 Portuguese
Summary Translation: Just when we thought that South African apartheid practices or the times of racial segregation in the US were “out of fashion”, we face the death of George Floyd. When we thought that there was no room for other issues today other than the Covid-19 pandemic, we remember that structural problems may be temporarily hushed up, but they are still there. It's ironic that the United States simultaneously holds the flags of racial reconciliation and violent racism. How can a nation led by a former black president which highlights African-American pride with Oscars and Emmys also be the scene of a savage death like that of George Floyd? It's not easy to understand. The only certainty is that the US, like many other countries, is far from homogeneous and this division has been sadly evident.
