today a cop was found guilty for murdering a Black man

it’s hours later and people still can’t believe it

even though it was on video

even though his police chief said yep it was fucked

even though there were witnesses everywhere

even though this sort of thing never happens

it happened.

people say George Floyd didn’t get justice,

that real justice would be if he would have been able to have just been treated like a human

today a dead black man was treated like a human

that may not be justice,

but it’s progress.
