In 1865, slavery was abolished in the United States. In 1964, the United States Senate passed the Civil Rights Act. However, neither act could undo centuries of learned bigotry. Following the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at the hands of police, it is all too clear that abuse of the African-American community, deeply institutionally ingrained, continues today.
