By The Federalist. The law has spoken. On Tuesday, a jury found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on counts of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and the second-degree manslaughter of George Floyd. After weeks of lawmakers and commentators chiming in and expressing a desire for Chauvin to be convicted, this wish has finally been granted, barring a retrial.
Yet the jury’s decision will not be enough for the left. It never was meant to be. To Democrats, Chauvin represents a systemic racism woven into the fabric of the United States — white supremacy that can only be quelled by restructuring the entire American system.
The case’s coverage was rarely truly about Chauvin, Floyd, or what really occurred on May 25, 2020. The left molded it into yet another example it claims proves black people are categorically murdered by American police. Still, data from 2017 to 2021 shows police shot whites to death in higher numbers, and regardless there is no proof that recent police shootings of black people have been racially motivated. . .
Racism happens in America, just like in every place. The left uses this to construct the myth that the United States as a whole is systemically racist, and that the only way to counterbalance this false premise is to riot against the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our communities. This could not have been better depicted than in Rep. Maxine Water’s, D-Calif., latest outburst this weekend.

Corporate America Virtue Signaling In Wake of Derek Chauvin Murder Conviction
By Breitbart. Corporate America did not miss the opportunity to weigh in on the jury finding former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on three counts of murder in the death of George Floyd, with Twitter feeds flying and corporate statements pouring into email boxes since the decision was announced on Tuesday.
Floyd’s death sparked violent protests across the country and solidified radical racial justice groups like Black Lives Matter, which encouraged violent protests and found financial support from some of these same corporations.
The past several weeks have been a painful and poignant reminder of the need to support reform and condemn injustice. Our thoughts are with the Floyd family as these verdicts will not replace their loss.

This day is meaningful in the pursuit of justice, although Black communities continue to experience targeted acts of violence. I want to affirm our support for our Black employees and the Black community.
