These recent tragedies reflect that we are still in much the same place we were before the “racial reckoning” following the murder of George Floyd in 2020. In fact, police violence has escalated since then. These acts also demonstrate how BIPOC can be complicit in white supremacy and perpetuate police violence. And, while the news cycle is quick to place responsibility on individual problems or “bad apples” in police departments, we know that dismantling white supremacist systems and structures is the only way to prevent these tragedies from occurring again.
