May 25, 2022 -- May 25 marks two years since George Floyd, the 46-year-old, died after a police officer kneed on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.
 
"I can't breathe," Floyd's dying words, rang throughout the US as protesters took to the streets against racial injustice and police violence.
 
Little progress has been seen despite the great international outburst of outrage and pledges for change.
 
The recent killing of a 26-year-old refugee from Congo in the US state of Michigan by a white police officer was another example of systematic pattern of police violence and brutality targeted at minority communities.
 
Last year, police violence is a leading cause of death among young Black men, and unarmed Black Americans are three times more likely to be killed by the police than are unarmed White people, according to The Washington Post.
