    The Derek Chauvin Verdict and Justice for George Floyd

    The Derek Chauvin Verdict and Justice for George Floyd

    Welcome to this special edition of Light-Skinned Opinions as we discuss the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial and if this truly meant justice for George Floyd. We talk about the repercussions of this case and if the precedent set will have reverberations going forward. Will police think about this verdict and have pause before killing or shooting an unarmed person? Also, we look at the reactions from professional teams' social media accounts, right wing pundits and democratic leaders. We laugh through the tears and take a hard look at the American justice system and where we can improve. Not the easiest subject to navigate, but as we usual we do it with raw realism and a sense of humor. Hit that subscribe button!!
