George-Floyd-munshots-_vAC0je-hKo-unsplash-1024x683White public officials have rushed before TV cameras to proclaim that the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police was the work of “one bad apple”, or a cop “gone rogue”—a statement then typically followed by the assurance that, “the great majority of police officers are not racists.” 

 African Americans have always seen such statements for what they are:  white people letting themselves off the hook.  White people refusing to acknowledge the depth and breadth of racism in America which, while it may be manifested in one ugly act at a time by one ugly racist at a time, has been going on for centuries; and extends far further and deeper than merely how black Americans are treated by police forces.

 One bad apple”? Really?  That’s it?
