George Floyd’s death was a tragedy that highlights that America still has a long way before we can put our history of racial injustice truly in the past instead of the present. The trial of the officer allegedly responsible for Floyd’s death began last week, and his defense is the rather unconvincing claim that George Floyd’s death had nothing to do with him kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly ten minutes.

Cher really wants this to be about Cher. In fact, Cher feels guilty that she didn’t do anything to save George Floyd’s life. The singer made this tweet about it.

Was talking with Mom & She Said ‘I Watched Trial Of Policeman Who Killed George Floyd, & Cried … I Said ‘Mom,I Know This Is Gonna Sound CRAZY, But.. I Kept Thinking … Maybe If I’d Been There, … I Could’ve Helped.

That’s amazing, honestly. Yes, all police brutality could be ended if we just sent elderly celebrities along with the police. Didn’t you hear about how June Squibb ended the war on terror? No terror anymore because of Sheldon’s grandma.

Cher initially doubled down and insisted that she, like Lynn Minmay, can save the world with the power of song.

Wrestled With This Twt, Because I Thought some ppl wouldn’t understand, Or Believe an Entertainer Could have Honest emotions about a human Being,suffering & Dying,even if It’s Only Shown On tv. You Don’t Know What I’ve Done,Who I Am,Or What I Believe.I CAN,I HAVE,& I WILL..HELP

Yeah. People called this an example of white savior complex, but it’s typical Hollywood brain damage, the delusion that you’re so important that you’re changing the world.

She eventually apologized after talking it over with a friend. Guess what her friend’s name is.

I Just got off phone With Friend Karen.Told her what Happened,& Realized,You Can Piss Ppl Off,& Hurt Them By Not Knowing Everything That’s”NOT Appropriate”To Say.I know Ppl Apologize When They’re In a Jam,BUT (hand emoji) TO GOD (prayer hands emoji),IM TRULY SORRY If I Upset AnyOne In Blk Community.I Know My (heart emoji)

Yeah, her friend’s name is Karen. If I was making this story up it wouldn’t have been this good. Notice what she doesn’t say is “I probably couldn’t have melted Derek Chauvin’s icy heart with a warm island song and I was incredibly naive to say I could have heaved George Floyd. Systemic racism is an issue we all have to work to combat and no one person can just flip a switch and make the world into a colorblind utopia.” What she did say was essentially she’s sorry you’re all such sensitive snowflakes for getting mad at her, just in a woke way.
