Demonstrations and other activities in the Southland, and across the nation, targeting systemic racism and police brutality have entered a second month with no signs of waning.

The ongoing actions were sparked by the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd was killed when a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes while he was handcuffed and face-down on the ground.

The officer was fired and has been charged with second-degree murder. Three other officers involved in the arrest were also fired and have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

As the protests continue, the focus has broadened to include a range of other issues including the debate over who deserves to be memorialized with a statue, Hollywood casting and gentrification.
