Where are these ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protests Going?

America has a history of oppressing black people. But it ends many decades ago by efforts of many black leaders. Still, somewhere in the subconscious minds of some Americans, this division exists. Either the person is a policeman or a civilian, there are many recent incidents of attacks on black people in the country. 

A similar case happened in Minneapolis where George Floyd was killed by a policeman. When the video got viral, the incident seems to be so saddening that it sparks black and white people across the country. The protests then went across borders in more than 40 countries. 

However, nothing extraordinary done to protect black lives. 

The protests seem to be going nowhere until the government shows its will and protect black people from oppression.
