Tonight, on It's Real Talk Radio, we will be covering 3 of the most recently talked about events involving the black community, 2 of them tragic and 1 with the potential to end tragic. We start off with Amy Cooper (a white woman) who called the police on Christian Cooper (no relation) and falsely reported being threatened by an African American man (Christian Cooper) because she was angry that Christian Cooper asked her to put a leash on her dog and then started filming her once she started acting irrational and coming close to him. With the rise in exposure to unarmed black men and women being harmed and killed by police, this video was alarming to the Black community and its supporters, because everyone knows how this could have ended.

Next we have the tragic killing of Houston native George Floyd who died in police custody due to suffocation, caused by Officer Chauvin (Derek Chauvin), a responding officer of the Minneapolis Police Department. This horrific slaying was caught on video and shared on social media where it went viral as public outcry began to dominate social media. Citizens of Minneapolis and neighboring counties began to rally in front of the Minneapolis Police Department, demanding justice for the brutal killing of George Floyd. The 4 involved officers including Officer Chauvin have since been fired but George Floyd's family, nor the public, are satisfied as outcry for the 4 involved officers to be charged with murder has begun to dominate story lines.

Finally, we will be speaking on the horrific slaying of 26 year old Breonna Taylor, who was reportedly shot 8 times by officers of the Louisville Metro Police Department, who were allegedly conducting a "No-Knock Warrant." Breonna was reportedly asleep when officers entered her apartment unannounced causing her boyfriend Kenneth Walker to fire a shot, wounding an officer, which lead to officers returning fire, fatally wounding Breonna.
